Cary Elwes is writing a book about the making of the film
"It was a joy to work on such a magical film with an amazing cast of talented actors and friends," Elwes said in a release about the book. "It will be great fun to revisit 'The Princess Bride' and to share my fond memories of the unforgettable experience we all had."
Elwes was inspired to write the book after joining the cast for a 25th anniversary screening last year in New York. In addition to his own stories, the book will include recollections from cast members
Rob Reiner, who directed the 1987 film, will pen a forward for "As You Wish" (for those who don't know the film, the phrase is Westley's refrain when talking to his love, Princess Buttercup, played by Wright). There is a co-author for the book, writer Joe Layden.
No word yet on whether Elwes will follow "As You Wish" with a memoir of starring in the horror film "Saw."
