There are very few projects currently in production that excite me more than Into The Woods. Based on Stephen Sondheim’s dark, brilliant stage play and featuring an extraordinarily talented cast, this could either be the best movie musical in decades or a massively crushing disappointment. I know some of you are worried about Johnny Depp’s involvement. But his role, The Big Bad Wolf, is so brief, I doubt he could do much damage. In fact, I think he could be delightful in small doses. Also rounding out the cast are Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Meryl Streep, Christine Baranski, James Corden and Tracey Ullman. You can see much of the cast here filming on location in the UK. So far so good, folks. I love the modern fairytale look of the costumes. After the atrocity that is Once Upon A Time’s costume department, this is a huge relief. Not cartoonish in the slightest. I’ve got the musical nerd tingles something fierce.
UPDATE: The Witch
Cinderella’s Stepmother And Stepsisters
The Baker’s Wife And Rapunzel’s Prince
Cinderella’s Prince, The Baker’s Wife, The Baker
The Baker (James Corden is such absolutely brilliant casting)
Cinderella And Her Prince
How long do we have to wait again? Ugh. Agony.
