Star Trek and Source Code Stars in Talks to Play Princely Brothers in INTO THE WOODS

We told you at the end of April that Meryl Streep and Johnny Depp had signed on to play parts in Disney’s Into the Woods. Meryl Streep would be playing the witch made famous by Bernadette Peters in the Broadway production and at the time of our post, Johnny Depp’s part had yet to be named.

I was really hoping that he would take the part of the wolf and according to THR my prayers have been answered! If you haven’t seen the stage production, rest assured that this role is PERFECT for him. That same article also names the two lads eying the roles of prince brothers.


Apparently Chris Pine (Star Trek Into Darkness) and Jake Gyllenhaal (Source Code) have already sung for director Rob Marshall. I really hope they can sing, because they would be amazing as the competitive brothers.

We’ll keep you posted on the latest for Into the Woods.
