Online Uproar!! No One Wants A ‘Princess Bride’ Remake!

Sep. 25. 2019

With Disney setting the trend for ‘reimagining’ (remaking) classic movies, we have been seeing more studios trying to catch up with them by remaking their old classics. Though it sounds good on paper, most critics and movie-lovers think that this move could degrade the audience’s viewing culture. Adding fuel to this fire, Sony Pictures’ CEO has recently hinted the possibility for remaking The Princess Bride. Last week, Sony Pictures boss Tony Vinciquerra mentioned in an interview: “Very famous people whose names I won’t use, but they want to redo The Princess Bride… Not a month goes by when we don’t have an idea coming from some very big name wanting to do things with Norman.”

Though there was no official confirmation about the remake, the comments became viral and suddenly every devoted fan on the internet weighed in on the situation. Actor Jamie Lee Curtis, the film’s original star Cary Elwes, and even the US senator Ted Cruz were few of the many who joined in on the fight between movie-lovers and studio-owners. 

 Few of the comments against the move are listed below:

It is incredible to realize that a tiny sentence in a small paragraph of a large profile could lead to such an outcry. However, we sincerely hope that the studio understands what their audience wants rather than what the board of directors want. After all, movies are for the audiences, right?!
