The star-studded cast of the beloved 1987 classic “The Princess Bride” is reuniting for a virtual reading of the film’s script later this month.
According to an exclusive report by Deadline, Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Carol Kane, Chris Sarandon, Mandy Patinkin, Wallace Shawn and Billy Crystal are all set to join in the reunion, which will serve as as a virtual fundraiser for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.
Director and venerated meathead Rob Reiner will join the cast, with Patton Oswalt serving as moderator. The livestreamed event will be held at 7 p.m. EST, 4 p.m. PST on September 13.
Elwes issued a statement through the state party saying, “I think most people are aware by now that Donald Trump has completely abdicated his duties as President to represent and stand up for all Americans. He has failed to keep the country safe from COVID-19 and as a result he is responsible for the devastating chaos, violence and economic collapse that we are now experiencing.”
He added, “If America is going to have a real chance at healing we must get rid of Trump. And that is only possible if we win Wisconsin. I am thrilled to be part of this very rare reunion of my colleagues from The Princess Bride as a way to increase awareness and garner resources for the state that will determine the fate of America.”
A signup and donation is required to stream the reunion, however there’s no minimum to join the event. Wisconsin represents one of three traditionally blue battleground states that Donald Trump flipped red in 2016, making the state pivotal for either party to win the 2020 presidential election.
