(LA Times)   The creator of The Princess Bride wants to do a sequel to the film, but can't come up with an idea for it. Obviously, the place to start is by signing The Big Show to play Andre the Giant's son   (herocomplex.latimes.com) divider line 68

Has nobody read the first chapter of "Buttercup's Baby"? Goldman got a perfectly good sequel started. And he's not dead quite yet...

Mr. Cat Poop: Westley and Buttercup's daughter falls in love with King Humperdink's son, the new prince who isn't an asshole like his pop. They run off to elope, but they get kidnapped on the way by ruffian's. The king and Westley have to work together and save their kids. They of course enlist the aid of the Dread Pirate Roberts.


As far as you know, I do not kidnap people...often

Also, Big Show is kind of a funny dude, he'd be alright if used similarly to Andre

If they do remake the princess bride they should stay closer to morgensterns original manuscript this time. I want a twenty minute scene dedicated just to hats.

Look, Reiner. We had a deal. I let you kill me off, no sequels.

DaCaptain19: So THIS is why we have such sucky movies and TV...

Bigwigs sit around and decide...first...that they're going to make the movie. "we're gonna make Princess 2 - it will generate ticket sales".

Second..."who's got an idea?"

(Crickets chirping)....

"Hey let's basically make the same movie but it's all based on every character's son/daughter!"

Two weeks later it's out on release.


RTFA, ya doof.

Whoo-hoo-hoo, look who knows so much. It just so happens that Goldman here is only MOSTLY dead.

Igor Jakovsky: FirstNationalBastard: It worked for WCW.

I confused this thread with the hulk hogan thread and was thinking...How did that work for WCW?


"Whatcha gonna do when the sperm of Hulkamania runs wild on you?!!"

/besides, after a certain point, nothing worked for WCW

scarmig: Fezzik's son, call it "The Prince's Bride", and of course it is about how Lil Fezzik hunts down the cult that kills his father, falls in love, and becomes king by his own hand.


Also, shoot me now.

ZeroCorpse: It's very simple. It's obvious- Especially if you read the book version...

A generation later, the boy from the first movie is reading to HIS kid (or grandkid, if they wait to much longer). He tells the same story, but HIS way. Because that's the point of the first movie. Granddad is reading "the good parts" of the book and skipping stuff on purpose, and he's telling the story his way, with his embellishments.

So you have the exact same story, but with a lot of changes. The different actors would be how the new boy in the story pictures the characters (because we all see someone different when we read a book's description of a character). The changes in the story would be the narrator's own influences updating and altering the story to fit the situation with his son/grandson.

So perhaps in this version, he leaves out the part about the Cliffs of Madness and substitutes something else. Or he makes the sword fights longer and more epic. Or he changes Buttercup's name to Princess Mathilda (because he never liked Buttercup). Or perhaps he throws in some more pirates because they were mentioned in the version he heard, and he always wanted to hear more about them and his granddad always skipped that stuff. Maybe he cuts out some more kissing. Maybe he changes Inigo to a Frenchman because he can't do a Spanish accent when reading those parts.

The point is, the story can be altered to be something different without being totally different, and it would still be in line with the basic theme of the first movie. It's about a story being told in a special way.


BRILLIANT.

My favorite part of this post is that it is inconceivable to the assholes responding that they are the very reason some people probably don't like the movie.

We get it, The Princess Bride is the greatest movie ever.
Yes, we know that we are bad people for not having seen it/wanting it to marry it.
Yes, watching it with you as you quote every line really enhances the experience.

/I really liked the movie
//For a long time I didn't know that TPB existed, so I thought people were talking about The Princess Diaries being the greatest movie ever
///I really thought people had weird taste in movies

They're going to get The South's #1 Export to play Andre's son?
