NEW YORK —

It's not completely inconceivable -- "The Princess Bride" is coming to the stage.

Disney Theatrical Productions said Monday it is planning to adapt the novel and screenplay for the beloved romantic comedy about Westley and Princess Buttercup. The creative team and timetable for the project have yet to be determined.

The film starred Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Christopher Guest, Fred Savage, Wallace Shawn, Billy Crystal and Carol Kane. It gave the world the immortal lines "My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die" and "completely inconceivable."

The book was written in 1973 by William Goldman, who adapted it for the 1987 film directed by Rob Reiner. The latest deal was brokered by Alan F. Horn, chairman of The Walt Disney Studios.
