Since the announcement of Meryl Streep and Johnny Depp leading Stephen Sondheim’s “Into the Woods”, more famous names have surfaced for parts in the film. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Jake Gyllenhaal and Chris Pine are in talks to join the Disney musical. Deal-making hasn’t quite begun but the two actors met and even sang for director Rob Marshall for their respective parts and are expected to receive offers to join the star-studded cast. If deals close, Gyllenhaal and Pine would play their first on-screen singing roles. And according to BroadwayWorld, singer Jewel is about to audition as well. She has taken to Twitter to muse on a particularly intriguing topic – singing the music of Stephen Sondheim, specifically the tricky “On The Steps Of The Palace” and followed with “Been working hard all weekend on an audition for a movie. Fingers crossed.” Why exactly is Jewel singing Sondheim’s “On The Steps Of The Palace”? What movie could she be auditioning for soon? She is not necessarily known for her musical theatre covers done in concert, after all. Indeed, the singer and sometimes actress has not been announced to be taking part in any upcoming production of “Into the Woods”, nor even scheduled to be a guest at a concert of Sondheim’s material as of this writing, so could she possibly be participating in the forthcoming feature film adaptation? Thanks to Glenn for the heads-up.
