 The next installment in the series of director Jason Reitman╩╝s readings of canonical film scripts will once again feature surprise casts this time revisiting, The Princess Bride.

Torture. Revenge. Giants. Monsters. Chases. Escapes. True love. Miracles.” – and all that he promised comes to life before the boy’s enchanted eyes as his grandfather reads him the adventures of Buttercup, the most beautiful woman in the world, and Westley, the man she loves.

The cast so far includes:
Patton Oswalt as Vizzini originated by Wallace Shawn
Nick Kroll as Count Tyrone Rugen originated by Christopher Guest
