Robin Wright - The Princess Bride Headed For The Stage

Robin Wright's star-studded movie classic The Princess Bride is heading for the stage - as a musical.

Disney Theatrical Productions executives have announced plans to collaborate with William Goldman on a show based on his 1973 fairytale, which he adapted for the big screen in 1987.

A statement from Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn reads: "My involvement in The Princess Bride goes back to 1987 and it has always been close to my heart. For all those years and a few more, I've been friends with the brilliant Bill Goldman, and to now have a stage production of this film in development at Disney is honestly a dream come true."

Wright's film, directed by Rob Reiner, also featured Cary Elwes, Mandy Patinkin, Wallace Shawn, Andre the Giant, Billy Crystal and Peter Falk.
