Default Hollywood Streaming Princess Bride Remake

Yep, Hollywood is remaking classic movie The Princess Bride, and gender-swapping the leads. Inconceivable.....

Quote:
Director Jason Reitman has taken charge of the project, for which the stars self-filmed scenes using their cell phones, with Jonas playing the titular character, aka Buttercup, and Turner - who is pregnant with the couple's first child - portraying the role of Westley, made famous by Cary Elwes in the beloved 1987 movie.

Looks like an utter train wreck.. Have they learned nothing?

Not in the works, the film is done and it arrives Monday exclusively on Quibi in the US:

https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood...emade-fan-film

It is an edit of homemade films from stars like Sophie Turner & Joe Jonas, Josh Gad, Rob Reiner (taking the place of Peter Falk), Hugh Jackman, Common, Tiffany Haddish, Jennifer Gardner, and more.

Basically the character and roles trade off as the story goes on. Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas offer the only gender flipped segment.

I guess if it is only a streamed from home thing, it won't be quite so bad...

On a side note, does MGM still own distribution rights to the original in the US or does Disney own it now?

MGM for home video. Due to the way rights work, Fox has subscription stream on demand rights which extended to Disney.

I started it... I forgot it is on Quibi so it is broken into parts.

Part 1 has Fred Savage, Adam Sandler (as the grandfather), Annabelle Wallis as Buttercup Chris Pine as Westley at the start. After the kiss, it swaps to Josh Gad and Rob Reiner as the kid and grandpa, respectively, with Common as Westley & Tiffany Haddish as Buttercup.

Each actor has pretty much shot their own part of the segments so Savage/Gad and Sandler/Reiner are not in the same room. Wallis and Pine shot theirs together and used Legos to have Buttercup ride into the stable.

Also because it is on Quibi, you can take advantage of the “turnstyle” feature. Landscape has the vertical video on side with scene comparison & notes on the other. Turn to portrait and you just get the video only.
