Various news outlets have reported on the filming of “Into the Woods”. Rehearsals for the film, which is being directed by Rob Marshall, began about 3 weeks ago at Shepperton Studios (where Guardians of the Galaxy is also filming). Now, according to recent casting calls, it looks like the movie will soon be filming on location in the coastal town of Dover, located in Kent, later this month. They are currently looking for people age 16 to 90 with “easy access to Dover or Canterbury”. BroadwayWorld has more news on the possible filming at Dover Castle. Given the location and its proximity to landmark Dover Castle, it appears Cinderella’s castle as seen onscreen – and as portrayed by Anna Kendrick – may very well have a real-life historical background. And the Belfast Telegraph has an interview with James Corden about rehearsing with Meryl Streep and Emily Blunt: “I’m shooting a film at the moment called Into The Woods with Meryl Streep and Johnny Depp, and we’ve started rehearsing, which is slightly terrifying. I’ve not met Johnny yet. But most of my scenes are with Meryl Streep and Emily Blunt. It’s thrilling, it’s brilliant.” Thanks to Frank and Glenn for collecting these news.
