Re: The Princess Bride

Oh darn, she couldn't hear the episode where Teague got fall-down drunk and proposed to The Princess Bride.

Shucks.

But seriously, I'll look into it.  neutral

That outro did sound like every drunk best man speech I've ever heard.  How fitting that Bride was in the title.  How accidentally meta.

Re: The Princess Bride

I know that stage adaptations have been done before, but this could be interesting...

Still in the baby stages of development, probably because Disney is looking at all the properties it hasn't milked to death yet, but still, there is potential, especially if they do a Broadway musical with it.

Re: The Princess Bride

So - Cary Elwes has just released a book about the making of 'The Princess Bride'. About the process, the cast and crew. The book apparantly debuted #3 on the NY Times Best Seller List.

He is the guest on the latest KPCS (The Kevin Pollak Chat Show) - on YouTube today.

Re: The Princess Bride

Incidentally, I just listened to this commentary again, and you guys pitched a "remake" with Morgan Freeman as the hag who shouts at Buttercup.


NOnononononono.

Sam Jackson. THAT'S who should be the hag.

Witness me!

Samuel L Jackson screaming at you makes you scared.

Morgan Freeman screaming at you makes you fucking think about what you did.

"...that you re-watched on VHS so many times that you can quote every line."

These guys obviously haven't heard about Teague.

Re: The Princess Bride

Post-apocalypse, when all remaining copies of the book and the film have been destroyed, Teague will be guiding a kid through the wilderness, The Last of Us style. One night, they take a seat by the camp fire...

"I'm gonna tell you a story."

"What is it?"

"It's a book. When I was your age television was called books."

"There's no book. And what's a television?"

*glares* "Look, the only way I'm gonna be able to tell you this thing is if I do it all in order. It's a mnemonic thing. Just go with it, alright?"

*sigh* "Fine."

"Now, this is a special story. I used to watch it every night when I was growing up, and then I podcasted about it before you were growing up, and now I'm gonna tell it to you."

"There's nothing to do with zombies in it, is there?"

"Are you kidding? Fencing. Fighting. Torture. Revenge. Giants. Monsters. Chases. Escapes. True love. Miracles."

"The monsters sound like zombies."

"Oh Christ." *takes a slug of whiskey* "Look, I promise, there are no zombies. Well, there may or may not be a bit of reanimation, but it's the good kind. Swear to god."

"It doesn't sound too bad. I'll try to stay awake."

And as the fire burns long into the night, and Teague halts his narrative every so often to check the perimeter, it begins...

Re: The Princess Bride

Teague and the child eventually run into another, similar pair, but one that places slightly different emphasis on different parts of the story; different "favorite parts" as it were.

This is why the Gospels don't always match up.
