More than 24 years after its release, "The Princess Bride" remains one of the most beloved cult classics in movie history, so filming a remake is no small task. However, director Jason Reitman recently announced the cast for his planned project and they are certainly up to the challenge, Paste magazine reports.

The main character of Westley is set to be played by Paul Rudd who has become a favorite among directors over the last several years. His love interested, the titular princess, will be played by Mindy Kaling, best known for her role as Kelly on "The Office."

The supporting cast is just as impressive as the two leads, the publication reports. Comedians Patton Oswalt and Nick Kroll are both on board as well. Of course, having an Oscar-nominated director like Reitman is not a bad place to start as well.

Anybody unfamiliar with Reitman's work may want to check out some of his best films including "Up in the Air," and "Juno," both of which earned him Oscar nods, and "Thank You for Smoking."
