While movies can merge audiences into the lives of their favorite characters, fans can really transcend the screen by purchasing their fictional heroes abode. This is the cost of four famous TV and movie homes. [MUSIC] Coinage, life, well spent, presented by Geico. Here's a story of the lovely Brady Bunch home that was put on the market is 2018. The second most photographed property in America was purchased by HGTV for an outstanding $3.5 million. Don't worry, it's not time to change the OG aesthetic. The channel is planning to keep it's groovy, 70s decor for future generations. 4 Privet Drive may be hated by Harry Potter, but it's a beloved location for many Muggles. The Dursley's three bedroom home, not including the one under the stairs, sold in 2016 for around $829,000. This price doesn't include the endless letter cleanup or Aunt Marge floating above your estate. Cameron's family lived in a Ferrari crashing estate in Ferris Bueller's Day Off. The property, including adjustable walls and a four car interior parking garage, sold for an outstanding $1.06 million. Maybe Ferris would've been more responsible if he knew the house's worth. Everywhere you look, everywhere you go, Full House holds on to the hearts of '90's kids. The colorful townhouse was used for exterior shots and sold in 2013 for $2.8 million. Whoa, baby! After reviewing these sale prices, maybe it's cheaper just to turn on your TV. Coinage. Life, well spent. Presented by GEICO.
At this point in media culture, it makes sense that Hollywood has grown obsessed with rebooting and/or remaking anything with a sliver of commercial appeal. I mean, who wants to come up with a brand new idea that has the potential to actually fail when you can just recreate a sure thing? Creativity is no match for that sweet, sweet reboot money …
Anyway, amid the craze (see: BH90210, Charlie’s Angels, live-action Lion King, Saved by the Bell, Lizzie McGuire etc.), Sony Pictures Entertainment CEO Tony Vinciquerra revealed that some “very famous people whose names won’t use” had expressed a desire to “redo” 1987 classic The Princess Bride. Without missing a beat, Twitter erupted in opposition, taking an “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” stance on the issue.
I will vote for the Presidential candidate who includes not remaking “The Princess Bride” as part of their platform.— andy lassner (@andylassner) September 18, 2019

Hollywood: I think we should remake The Princess Bride
Twitter: TONIGHT WE RIDE AS ONE
Look, there is no point in remaking The Princess Bride. We already know what became of Buttercup. pic.twitter.com/6YgO5R9kG3— Dr. Karen James ❄️ (@kejames) September 18, 2019

But it wasn’t just viewers who opposed the remake. Cary Elwes, who played Westley in the film, repurposed one of Bride’s most famous lines to express his feelings about the news, writing, “There’s a shortage of perfect movies in this world. It would be a pity to damage this one.”

Jamie Lee Curtis, who’s married to Christopher Guest (Bride’s Count Rugen), shared her thoughts as well, writing, “I married the six fingered man, obviously why we have stayed together for 35 years and there is only ONE The Princess Bride and it’s William Goldman and @robreiner’s. 'Life is pain highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something!'"
Oh really? Well, I married the six fingered man, obviously why we have stayed together for 35 years and there is only ONE The Princess Bride and it’s William Goldman and @robreiner’s. “Life is pain highness.

This case is officially (hopefully) closed. To Twitter audiences, the idea of a Princess Bride remake is clearly inconceivable.
