My favorite, or rather one of them, the other one is Willow, is the Princess Bride. The book was written by one of the most prolific screenwriters in Hollywood, William Goldman. He was a loyal customer at my father’s restaurant, my father loved talking with him. He was a fixture at the restaurant at least once a week. Mister Goldman was a huge hockey fan and loved eating at the restaurant before the game.
I guess when the book was optioned as a movie, the logical choice for screenwriter was to get the best in Hollywood, Mister Goldman, he had written screenplays for so many classics, such as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Thus he wrote the screenplay for the movie as well, of course and it was directed by Rob Reiner.
Since the ending was a happily ever after and the whole story was the drama of the enduring love between Princess Buttercup and Wesley the former farm boy who became the Dread Pirate Roberts, we need an another point of drama that will test the steadfastness of their love and engage their friends to help them through the drama.
I would imagine that Princess Buttercup and Wesley have a child, a baby girl who gets kidnapped and the ransom being demanded is way out of their ability to pay. In comes Inigo Montoya, the new Dread Pirate Roberts to the rescue. Fessini is still with Princess Buttercup and Wesley in the capacity as houseman. The gang is back and we can’t forget Miracle Max and his wife, they could be of help in retrieving the baby Princess.
