On Its Way To The White Way

Film director Rob Reiner still plans to turn his movie  The Princess Bride into a Broadway musical. He
told entertainment news blog WENN: "I think it would make a great musical. I think the songs As You Wish and Inconceivable, and The Battle of Wits just jump out at you." Reiner's best known movies are Stand By Me and When Harry Met Sally. He has previously approached composer Randy Newman and musician John Mayer to write the songs. They both have declined. Back in 2006, Tony award-winning composer Adam Guettel and the original book's author William Goldman announced their plans for a Princess Bride musical, but the project was abandoned in early 2007, when Goldman and Guettel cited contract disputes. In November 2013, Disney announced plans to team up with Goldman for a musical adaptation of The Princess Bride, launching a website in February 2014 that offered fans future updates. It has never been updated.
