Quibi to Air at-Home Remake of ‘The Princess Bride’ Starring Joe Jonas, Sophie Turner, Tiffany Haddish and More

Beginning June 29, Quibi will stream an all-star re-creation of The Princess Bride filmed by actors at home while in quarantine, releasing chapters of the fan-made movie every day for two weeks.

Although the challenge is helmed by "Juno" director Jason Reitman, who has beforehand staged dwell readings of the movie's script, the remake was shot exclusively at-home by every solid member utilizing their telephones. Turner stars in the Quibi drama "Survive" and both Turner and Jonas can be seen in the Quibi travel series "Cup of Joe".

Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas are set to appear in the at-home remake of "The Princess Bride" as Westley and Buttercup, respectively, in a gender-flipped portrayal. Their corgi, outfitted with what looks like a neck pillow, plays a fearsome Rodent of Unusual Size.

An added bonus of the project is that the original director of The Princess Bride - Rob Reiner - is playing the role of "The Grandfather", and Fred Savage is reprising his role of "The Grandson". Actors filmed the scenes with their phones.

The home movie project is raising funds for the World Central Kitchen charity, with Quibi kicking off donations with a $1 million dollar contribution toward 100,000 meals to feed people affected by COVID-19.

The fantasy, of course, derived from Goldman's book and was adapted by the writer himself into a memorable comedy drama that follows a farm boy (Cary Elwes in the film) who becomes a pirate and a hero to reunite with his lost love (Robin Wright's Princess Buttercup). "It would be a pity to damage this one".
