Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas are spending the summer getting ready to welcome their baby, but they've also been working on another project of late. They took part in an at-home remake of The Princess Bride (1987) from Quibi. The project, benefitting World Central Kitchen, was directed by Juno's Jason Reitman and was shot entirely at home by the actors on their phones. Beginning June 29, Quibi will release chapters of the movie every day for two weeks.
On Friday, Vanity Fair released a first look of the movie, which shows Turner in the role of Westley (originally played by Cary Elwes) and Jonas playing Princess Buttercup (originally played by Robin Wright) in the scene where they escape the fire swap and face the Rodent Of Unusual Size (ROUS). Their corgi plays the ROUS.
