(PJ MEDIA) -- Fans are outraged after Variety reported that Sony Pictures Entertainment CEO Tony Vinciquerra said, "Very famous people whose names I won't use, but they want to redo 'The Princess Bride.'"
The Princess Bride is a cult classic par excellence. The movie's unforgettable lines of dialogue have launched a thousand memes. It combines the elements of romance, sword fights, vendettas, and humor (and yes, more than a little corniness) to create a masterpiece — one many fans would say is perfect.
In fact, Cary Elwes, the actor who played Westley (and the Dread Pirate Roberts), had the perfect response to the remake news.

"There’s a shortage of perfect movies in this world. It would be a pity to damage this one," Elwes tweeted.
