On their journey, they cross paths with several quirky fairytale characters, including Rapunzel, Cinderella, and Little Red Riding Hood.

Casting Rumor – Anna Kendrick Could Journey “Into the Woods” as Cinderella

Casting rumors circulating actress Anna Kendrick are stating she is in talks to play Ciinderella in the Disney adaptation of the hit Broadway musical, Into the Woods. The actress revealed her vocal talents last year in Pitch Perfect and is currently working on an adaptation of another musical, The Last Five Years.

This project already has a great cast lined up with Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Jake Gyllenhaal, Chris Pine, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Tracy Ullman and Christine Baranski all in various stages of negotiations. Corden will be playing the Baker, Ullman will be playing Jack the Giant Killer’s mother, and Baranski will be playing Cinderella’s Stepmother.

Into the Woods is a very unique, interesting, and darkly comedic musical. The story follows a Baker and his wife, who are on a journey to try and find the witch to get her to lift a family curse she has cast on them. On their journey, they cross paths with several quirky fairytale characters, including Rapunzel, Cinderella, and Little Red Riding Hood.

Anna Kendrick

Cinderella’s situation is a little different in this musical as she is already married to the Prince (Pine), but it turns out he is quite vain. However, she is still trying to find herself and her place in the world.

Rod Marshall will be directing Disney’s adaptation of this popular musical. Plus, John DeLuca is producing, James Lapine wrote the screenplay, and David Krane will be working on the music for the highly anticipated movie musical.

Will you be interested in seeing Into the Woods as a movie musical? Do you think Kendrick will be right for the role of Cinderella? Be sure to check in for more news about Into the Woods as production development and casting continues!

Casting Scoop – Actress Emily Blunt in Talks to Join “Into the Woods”

Just a few days after casting rumors stating Chris Pine and Jake Gyllenhaal may be joining the Into the Woods adaptation began to circulate, more news has come to light.

The Hollywood Reporter has shared that actress Emily Blunt is also in talks to join the Rob Marshall-directed movie musical. If Blunt joins the project she will be playing the Baker’s Wife, who is “placed under a spell of barrenness by her sorceress neighbor.” However, when she is freed from the power of the spell, she suddenly becomes pregnant.

Most of the parts in this musical are fairly demanding when it comes to singing. This should not be an issue for Blunt if she is officially cast in the role as she does have some experience in singing.

As previously reported, Meryl Streep and Johnny Deep have both already signed on to the project as the vain and evil witch and the wolf, respectively. Although the deals for Pine and Gyllenhaal to join the cast have not officially started, they have gone through an audition process.

John DeLuca is producing, James Lapine wrote the screenplay, and David Krane will be working on the music for the anticipated adaptation.

What do you think of these potential casting choices? Will you be interested in seeing Into the Woods as a movie musical? Be sure to check in for more news about Into the Woods as early production development continues!

Casting Scoop – Chris Pine and Jake Gyllenhaal in Talks to Join “Into the Woods” Adaptation

Broadway fans maybe intrigued and excited to hear that production and casting is picking up for the movie adaptation of the classic fairytale musical Into the Woods. 

The Hollywood Reporter has shared that actors Chris Pine and Jake Gyllenhaal are in talks to join the cast of the Rob Marshall-directed movie musical. If Pine and Gyllenhaal sign on, they will be playing Cinderella’s Prince and Rapunzel’s Prince. These characters are also brothers who are both very self-absorbed and snobbish.

For those of you unfamiliar with the musical, it follows a Baker and his wife who go on a journey to find the witch who cast a spell on them and try to lift a family curse. On their journey, they cross paths with several quirky and interesting characters, including Rapunzel, Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood.

Meryl Streep and Johnny Deep have both already signed on to the project as the vain and evil witch and the wolf, respectively. Although the deals for Pine and Gyllenhaal to join the cast have not officially started, they have auditioned for Marshall. If these deals are made official, both actors will be making their movie musical debut.

John DeLuca is producing and James Lapine wrote the screenplay for the anticipated adaptation. The original Tony-winning score is by Stephen Sondheim. However, David Krane will be working on the music for the film. Even though there is currently no release date set, the production is considering starting in the fall.

Are you a fan of the musical Into the Woods? Are you looking forward to seeing a movie version of this classic show? What do you think of these potential casting choices?
