Joe Jonas, Sophie Turner, and ‘Juno’ Director Secretly Organize A ‘The Princess Bride’ Remake for Charity. Joe Jonas (The Jonas Brothers, Camp Rock) and wife, Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones, X-Men: Dark Phoenix) decided to spend some of their time in quarantine secretly filming a ‘The Princess Bride‘ “remake” in gender swapped roles to help raise funds for World Central Kitchen after being contacted by Juno director, Jason Reitman.
“World Central Kitchen is working across America to safely distribute individually packaged, fresh meals in communities that need support – for children and families to pick up and take home, as well as delivery to seniors who cannot venture outside. WCK is now active in dozens of cities providing over 250,000 fresh meals every day. Traditional safety nets like school feeding programs, city services, and food banks are struggling to meet basic needs. Seniors, who are isolated for their safety, are unable to access meal services. Meanwhile, the country’s hospital workers are more stretched than ever before. WCK is also now activating restaurants to help meet this demand by providing jobs for their staff and meals for those in need. #ChefsForAmerica is making a key connection between people who need meals and restaurant workers and drivers who need to earn a living.”
The celebrity couple is known for their series on Quibi, a short video streaming service, and decided to make the most of their newfound downtime to create some fun content while helping those in need.
And now, for your viewing pleasure: the fan film version of Westley and Buttercup vs. their own ROUS.
