According to BroadwayWorld, Rob Marshall has made Stephen Sondheim’s “Into the Woods” his next project at Warner Bros/Disney – and a starry reading just has kicked the project off. BW has confirmed that the cast of the screenplay reading included Nina Arianda, Christine Baranski, James Corden, Allison Janney, Anna Kendrick, Donna Murphy and Patrick Wilson, among others. The cast for the film has not yet been announced, but BroadwayWorld has learned that Meryl Streep is in talks to join the film as the Witch, but was unable to make the reading. What’s interesting about this news is that Meryl has been already in talks to play the witch, when “Into the Woods” had a revival this year at the Public Theater. These news have never been confirmed back then, so let’s see if there’s more to the story this time. Thanks to everybody for the heads-up.
