I don't typically write about trade news on a Friday night, but this is Anna Kendrick, folks, and she's in negotiation to take a lead in a movie that already includes Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Chris Pine, Jake Gyllenhaal, Emily Blunt, Tracy Ullman and Christine Baranski in various stages of negotiation.

The film is Into the Woods, a Disney adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's musical, described as "a darkly comic mashup of classic fairy tales that revolves around a childless baker and his wife (Blunt), who attempt to lift a family curse by journeying into the woods to confront the witch that put the spell on them. Along the way, they encounter a group of characters including Rapunzel, Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood."

Kendrick would play Cinderella, who is married to a vain prince (Chris Pine) and trying to find her place in the world. She would also sing. Rob Marshall is attached to direct.
