FINALLY! There have been whispers of it for what feels like forever, but the stage adaptation of the super-popular 1979 William Goldman novel and subsequent 1987 film, The Princess Bride, is inching ever-closer to being brought to life.
Disney Theatrical Productions has confirmed that the musical is in development from a trio of writers currently lighting up Broadway; David Yazbek, Rick Elice and Bob Martin.
