‘Princess Bride’ coming to the stage

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

In what will hopefully be a blissful mawage, Disney has announced plans to work with William Goldman on a theatrical production based on both his book “The Princess Bride” and on his screenplay for Rob Reiner’s 1987 classic film.

This is not the first time someone has tried to bring the story to the stage. Goldman teamed up with other theater people several years ago, but per The Hollywood Reporter, although “much of the score was completed, development was halted in 2007 over a financial dispute.”

Somehow we have faith that Disney can make this thing finally happen. If not, we know a certain six-fingered man who might be able to give them a push.
