Princess Bride fans, Cary Elwes will narrate As You Wish with former cast

Wonderful news for all fans of ‘The Princess Bride,’ Simon & Schuster Audio confirmed today that Cary Elwes will narrate his new audiobook AS YOU WISH: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride, and he is getting some help. Many of his Princess Bride co-stars including Billy Crystal, Christopher Guest, Carol Kane, Chris Sarandon, Andy Scheinman, Wallace Shawn, and Robin Wright along with producer Norman Lear and director Rob Reiner will join Elwes on the audiobook, available on CD and for download on October 14, 2014 simultaneous with the hardcover and ebook editions.

“Narrating the audiobook is a very unique and personal way to share the stories from AS YOU WISH with fans of the film,” says Elwes. “I’m delighted that many of my cast mates joined me on the recording, and I hope listeners enjoy the finished program as much as I enjoyed creating it.”

Elwes, who starred as Westley in the film, was inspired to share his memories and give fans an unprecedented look into the creation of the film while participating in the twenty-fifth anniversary cast reunion in 2012.

“The Princess Bride has become a touchstone in American culture. Its appeal spans generations,” says Chris Lynch, President & Publisher of Simon & Schuster Audio. “To have so many of the stars and creators sharing their experiences from the film along with Cary will make the audiobook an unforgettable listening experience.”
