Bored Celebs Create A Scrappy At-Home Version Of The 1987 Classic “The Princess Bride”

The movie “Princess Bride” remake? Unbelievable! The iconic 80s comedy romance film is dear to our hearts that we can watch it over and over again. A-list actors including Hugh Jackman, Tiffany Haddish, Joe Jonas, and others secretly teamed up during quarantine in June 2020 to create a rough-hewn version of the movies. They put on costumes and improvised “sets” to recreate the tale and add a sense of humor to the movie.

Filmmaker Jason Reitman devised the idea back in March, seeing it as a way to raise funds for the World Central Kitchen charity. This charity helped thousands of restaurants stay afloat and provided millions of meals to the needy. Reitman hoped that the remake could make viewers laugh a lot in times of hardship. He told the Vanity Fair: “I need to be able to do something of value.”

Let’s take a look at some scenes of the movie. Maybe you’ll surprise by the way the cast remade it.

While stuck in quarantine 2 years ago, some of the most famous people worked in secret to shoot a homemade fan-film version of “The Princess Bride” on their phones. The A-list crew includes Josh Gad, Hugh Jackman, Tiffany Haddish, Common, Joe Jonas, and others.

The cast felt so happy to be a part of the movie. The director, Jason Reitman, shared: “They’ve been working tirelessly for the last two to three months to create a movie from scratch, just because. The money is for a good cause, and it’s fun to connect with a movie you love.”

Reitman sought real-life couples living together for the romantic scenes

While most of the actors shot their parts separately, Reitman sought real couples to act some romantic scenes, so they could appear in the same frame and improve interaction and chemistry.

Reitman said: “Sam Rockwell and Leslie Bibb did a scene, and when they do Westley and Buttercup rolling down the hill, they just filled trash bags, put their clothes on them, and threw them down a stairway…Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka, his husband, went as Westley and Inigo Montoya for Halloween one year, so they have an incredible Man in a Black costume that they looked for in storage.”

During the production, Reitman rarely spoke with the actors, they “didn’t communicate before or during either” because the actors were not in the same place. Despite the lack of interaction, the remake was still highly entertaining.

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner gender-swapped their character. Joe Jonas played princess, wearing a gown and blonde wig while Sophie Turner disguised as a man in black putting on a mask. They tried to escape the Fire Swamp and its infestation. The monstrous creature is embodied by their corgi, plumped by a neck pillow.
