More than 25 years later, Cary Elwes still has the fondest memories of starring in The Princess Bride.

The actor has a deal with Touchstone, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, for a memoir about the beloved fairy tale. The book is called As You Wish: Tales from the Princess Bride.

Touchstone announced Friday that it has scheduled publication for the fall of 2014.

Rob Reiner, who directed The Princess Bride, is contributing a foreword.

The book, to be co-written by Joe Layden, also will include interviews with Billy Crystal, Robin Wright and other cast members from the 1987 production. Elwes and Wright starred as the lovers Westley and Buttercup.

Elwes' other film credits include Days of Thunder and Bram Stoker's Dracula.
