The Hollywood Reporter announced that Disney has tapped Rob Marshall to direct the studios film adaptation of Into the Woods. Marshall is no stranger to movie musicals having directed Chicago and Nine. The Oscar nominated director most recently teamed with Disney to direct Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
Into the Woods is a musical with music and lyrics written by Steven Sondheim, and is based on the book by James Lapine. The story features several fairytale characters including Rapunzel, Cinderella, and Little Red Riding Hood. Their stories are tied together with the tale of a baker, his wife, and their journey to start a family. Lapine is currently working on the script for the film adaptation and Sondheim is expected to write some original songs for the film.
I have always wanted to see a production of Into the Woods so I am really excited about this project and I can’t wait to see who they cast in the various roles. Stay tuned to Chip and Company for more news as this project develops.

Oh, yay! The stage production is a favorite in my Broadway loving home. My 8 -year-old watches the stage version on Netflix streaming quite often. Can’t wait to see how they approach this.
Woo hooo! I am a long time fan of Into the Woods. And am so glad #Disney is the one bringing it to the big screen. I want to apologize now to whoever gets to sit next to me and hear my very bad singing.
