My friend and I plan on recording a folk/rock album that follows the story line of the movie "The Princess Bride". We plan on basing each song on a different character in the movie as well as quoting a few memorable lines here and there (although the lyrics will be in our own words). We don't really plan on going too far with this project....mainly just share it with friends but I would like to get it up in the internet for people to hear/buy.
My questions: Will we get in trouble for using the themes from the movie? Is there some way to get rights to do this?
I'd like to think of the album as nothing more than a tribute to the movie....but I just want to play it safe.
