The Princess Bride is coming to the stage. Disney Theatrical Productions plans to adapt the novel and screenplay for the beloved romantic comedy. The creative team and timetable for the project have yet to be determined. The latest deal was brokered by Alan F. Horn, the chairman of The Walt Disney Studios.

   The book was written in 1973 by William Goldman, who later adapted it for the 1987 motion picture directed by Rob Reiner.  The film co-starred Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Christopher Guest, Fred Savage, Peter Falk, Billy Crystal, and Carol Kane. The screenplay was selected by the Writers Guild of America in 2006 as the 84th best screenplay of all time;  it earned the same ranking in the Guild’s 2013 update. The Princess Bride is considered a cult classic since its release. It is widely regarded as eminently quotable, and has been referred to as The Wizard of Oz of our time.
