"Princess Bride" Author Finds Sequel to be Sadly Inconceivable

William Goldman, the author of the beloved Princess Bride novel that became the beloved Princess Bride movie, told fans that he'd love to write a sequel to his book, but has not been able to think of an idea for it."

Goldman's got a history of coming up with good ideas, as the screenwriter for both All the President's Men and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, but the idea for Princess Bride 2 just won't come.

Some things are best left without a sequel (Indiana Jones 4) and without a prequel (Star Wars 1-3). Perhaps "Princess Bride" just needs to be one movie.

I don't understand why we can't leave well-enough alone.. its like everything in our age has to have some kind of sequel... i mean, the most he's gonna get out of it is more money... which would be nice for him i guess... All that to say, I wish we would stop worrying about sequels and the "next thing", and instead focus on the now
