The beloved tongue-in-cheek fairytale Academy Award winning writer William Goldman (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, All the President’s Men) is heading to the stage through Disney's theatrical division. At this time there's no word who the production team will be, or when it will begin official development. Goldman adapted the fantasy/romance/comedy story into a beloved live-action film directed by Rob Reiner and starring Cary Elwes as Westley (aka The Dread Pirate Roberts), Robin Wright as his true love Buttercup, Mandy Patinkin as Spanish swordsman Inigo Montoya and Andre the Giant as gentle brute Fezzik. Released in 1987 through Castle Rock Entertainment, the film also starred Chris Sarandon, Christopher Guest, Wallace Shawn, Peter Falk, Fred Savage, Billy Crystal and Carol Kane »
