Anna Kendrick's Cinderella Will Bring All the Boys to the Ball
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.

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)
