Tracey Ullman for Into the Woods?

Jun 13 2013, 10:14am CDT | by

Tracey Ullman is joining the all-star cast of 'Into the Woods'.

The comedienne is negotiating a role in Disney's fairytale musical movie and looks likely to round out the A-list cast, which is said to include Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep and Chris Pine.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the British-born star - best known for her comedy sketch shows - will play Jack the Giant Killer's mother in Rob Marshall's upcoming project.

The dark comedy centres around a childless baker and his wife, expected to be played by James Corden and Emily Blunt, who journey deep into the woods in order to find the witch who cursed them. They meet a series of beloved characters from popular fairytales along the way, including Cinderella and Rapunzel.

Depp is reportedly on board to play a ''hungry and sexy'' version of Little Red Riding Hood's big bad wolf, while Streep is playing the wicked witch.

The movie is based on Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Broadway musical, with 'Chicago's David Krane on board to arrange the music, while Lapine is adapting the script based on his musical book.

The part will be Ullman's first since Amy Heckerling's 2007 comedy 'I Could Never Be Your Woman' alongside Michelle Pfeiffer and Paul Rudd. Her most recent sketch comedy series, 'Tracey Ullman's State of the Union', ran from 2008 to 2010 on Showtime in the US.

Into the Woods, directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago) is a musical based on the stage work from Stephen Sondheim, but you wouldn’t have known that from the film’s first trailer. This featurette, however, gives us not only interviews with the cast and crew, discussing the creation of the film, but also a lot more footage. And singing! In this you can hear the cast sing for the first time. There are snippets of ‘I Wish,’ featuring Anna Kendrick ...

Featurette Finally Shows the Musical Side of Disney's 'Into the Woods'

Oct 23 2014 12:52pm CDT | Source: First Showing

Following yesterday's laughable reveal of Johnny Depp as The Wolf in Disney's adaptation of the Broadway musical Into the Woods, a new featurette has popped up that finally shows the melody side of the film that wasn't present in the first teaser trailer. The featurette lays out the story a little clearer as an ensemble of characters are all wishing for something, and Meryl Streep's elderly witch tells them to go into the woods to have their dreams come true. But of ...

Oct 23 2014 1:19am CDT | Source: Total Film

A new batch of images have arrived online from Disney’s Into The Woods, giving us a good look at the A-list cast in all its fairytale glory. First of all, there’s Anna Kendrick looking resplendent as Cinderella, while Chris Pine cuts a dash as a horse-riding Prince Charming. Then there’s Johnny Depp’s Big Bad Wolf, who appears to be sporting a very sober outfit, as opposed to any sort of elaborate costume or CGI trickery. Not that Depp isn’t convinced he will be a vis ...

New INTO THE WOODS Images Feature Johnny Depp’s Big Bad Wolf, Anna Kendrick’s Cinderella, and More

Oct 22 2014 5:47pm CDT | Source: Collider

Earlier this morning, we got our first look at Johnny Depp’s Big Bad Wolf from director Rob Marshall’s (Chicago) upcoming musical adaptation Into the Woods.  It’s an interesting look to say the least, and while I figured the reason Depp was left out of the trailer was because his character would be CG-aided, it turns out he’s actually just wearing what looks like a relatively cheap Halloween costume.  Indeed, Depp tells EW Marshall let him put his own spin on the character: “Rob Ma ...
