Good news, Princess Bride fans! Cary Elwes, aka Westley, is writing a book about his experiences making the iconic movie.
Cary, 51, announced that he's working on a book entitled As You Wish: Tales from the Princess Bride, set to be published in fall 2014. The book is a collection of his memories from the set. The title, as any Princess Bride fan knows, comes from the famous line that Westley said to his beloved, Princess Buttercup.
"It was a joy to work on such a magical film with an amazing cast of talented actors and friends," British-born Cary told the Hollywood Reporter. "It will be great fun to revisit The Princess Bride and to share my fond memories of the unforgettable experience we all had."
In addition to sharing his own stories, Cary will also interview some of his costars to get other perspectives on what it was like making the memorable flick. Those costars include Robin Wright, who played Westley's true love Buttercup, and Billy Crystal, who played the hilarious Miracle Max.
So what brought the book about? Cary says that he was inspired to write it after the cast had a big reunion in NYC last year to celebrate the 25th anniversary of The Princess Bride. Wait, the movie is more than a quarter century old? INCONCEIVABLE!
