Apparently, “‘The Princess Bride’ remake rumors spur social media outrage.”
I have never understood this reaction. No matter what a new version might look like, it will have absolutely zero impact on the original. The original 1987 version will still be one hour and 38 minutes long. It will still star Cary Elwes, Robin Wright and Mandy Patinkin. It will feature Andre the Giant, Fred Savage, Billy Crystal, and the rest.
Nothing will change. A new version will be its own thing. A new version would be unique. It can not possibly have any impact on the original.
Lighten up, folks.
In any event, there are no existing plans to remake the movie.
