Filmmaker Jason Reitman decided to exercise his own form of expression by getting together a group of Hollywood actors to recreate the entire movie of Princess Bride, all from their own personal isolation stations. They had nothing else to do anyway…
Reitman said: “I just thought, Can we remake an entire movie at home? And I had seen that a fan-made Star Wars had been done.”
The footage was mashed into a series of the classic that aired on Quibi last Monday and will go on for two weeks.
The footage was shot on the actors’ phones from their own homes, and features Jack Black, Hugh Jackman, Tiffany Haddish, Joe Jonas, Diego Luna, and Common, just to name a few.
And if all that wasn’t enough, Quibi donated $1 million dollars in the name of the project to World Central Kitchen, which provides food to coronavirus victims. Check out some pics of the sneak preview and head to Quibi to see it in full.
