Meryl Streep looks evil in the first image from Into The Woods
With production of INTO THE WOODS getting underway, Disney wisely decided to release an official image from the film to combat all of the leaked set photos that have been popping up. The first image is of Meryl Streep in character as a witch seeking to reverse a curse that took away her beauty. From the looks of it, it seems Meryl Streep is going all out for the character, which is no surprise for someone that might be the greatest actress of all time. Given that this is a Rob Marshall musical starring Meryl Streep and Johnny Depp, you can bet Disney will be pushing this one hard for Oscar glory next year.
INTO THE WOODS is set to star Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep, Chris Pine, Anna Kendrick, Emily Blunt, Christine Baranski, James Corden, Tracy Ullman and Lucy Punch. The Rob Marshall directed film hits theaters everywhere on December 25th, 2014. The official INTO THE WOODS synopsis of the Broadway musical: A young maiden called Cinderella, an abstracted boy named Jack, his mother, the giant he upsets, a childless baker and his wife, Rapunzel, a couple of princes, a witch, Little Red Riding Hood, and the wolf all find themselves in the woods, where they are forced to face their fears, and learn a few lessons along the way.
