The actress playing Valerie in the 1987 film insists that director Rob Reiner and her other co-stars would agree with her statement that it was perfect as it is.

AceShowbiz - Veteran funnywoman Carol Kane will never be part of a "The Princess Bride" remake, because she doesn't think there's any need to reboot perfection.

With so many Hollywood studios greenlighting revamps of classic films like "A Star Is Born", "Aladdin", "Dumbo" and "The Lion King (2019)", fans of Rob Reiner's classic fairytale are hoping for the news of a return of characters like Westley, Inigo Montoya, Prince Humperdinck, Fezzik, Miracle Max and Kane's character Valerie, but she's hoping Tinseltown leaves the 1987 film well alone.

"I don't think a movie remake (would work) because I think it's perfect (as it is)," Kane told Page Six at The Paley Media Center on Thursday, January 24. "I would gather that Rob Reiner would say the same and everybody in it would say the same."

The film also starred Cary Elwes, Mandy Patinkin, Wallace Shawn, Andre the Giant, Christopher Guest, Robin Wright Penn, and Billy Crystal.

"I think that I cannot imagine them doing a remake although now they're doing remakes of just about everything," Carol added. "But why remake something that's perfect the first time around? That's what I think."

Reiner gathered his cast together for a 25th anniversary celebration in 2012 - Kane joined the director and many of the film's stars for the premiere of a restored print of the movie at Alice Tully Hall in New York City.

The screening was held as part of the 2012 New York Film Festival in conjunction with the release of a Blu-ray edition of the cult classic.
