Depp, Streep To Go “Into the Woods”

Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep are in talks to join the film adaptation of Stephen Sondheim’s Broadway musical “Into the Woods” at Disney Pictures

The musical revolves around a childless baker (Depp) and his wife who attempt to lift a family curse by journeying into the woods to confront the witch (Streep) that put the spell on them.

Rob Marshall (“Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”) helms the project which features various classic fairy tale characters.

James Lapine penned the script while David Krane (“Chicago, “Nine”) will arrange the music. Depp appeared in the film adaptation of Sondheim’s “Sweeney Todd” and is expected to sing again in this.
