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 Marshall wasn't afraid to let me take the role to a level of heightened reality, almost cartoon-like, where one second the Wolf is here, and then, boom, suddenly he's over there.” Nevertheless, the film still has promise with its fantastic ensemble and twisty premise, and some new Into the Woods images have now landed online that give some different looks at Depp’s wolf, »

Entertainment Weekly just gave us a chilling new visual from "Into the Woods" with Johnny Depp in costume as the Wolf. Sigh. Dear God. Take a look. We had these ten reactions. 1. "Into the Woods" is going to feel like an Evanescence video directed by Tim Burton. 2. I'm guessing the Wolf's parents are a Steven Tyler mic stand and a Stevie Nicks yard sale. 3. Can Russell Brand or Keith Richards sue Johnny Depp? Do they have to sue each other first? 4. When did Johnny Depp become an airbrushed Mickey Rourke? 5. I think he's about to cry. 6. Little Red Riding Hood is looking at us like, "Can you believe I'm supposed to be scared of this freakish art dealer?" 7. Furry sleeves? He looks like Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer dyed turquoise. 8. You know Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter sit around dreading the day they'll have to play each other. 9. It's so easy »

Courtesy of Entertainment Weekly we have our very first look at Johnny Depp as ‘The Wolf’ in Into The Woods, which arrives in cinemas later this year. The image/ promo art was part of a four piece ‘Holiday Movie Preview’ collector’s edition of the publication which also gives us a look at Lilla Crawford, Meryl Streep, Mackenzie Mauzy, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, James Corden and Emily Blunt in the Disney film.
Into The Woods is a modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch »

Cast your minds back to July, and you may recall Disney dropping the first teaser for its upcoming musical romp, Into The Woods. The anticipation began to mount with stills and posters littering the web, before we had the chance to see the starry cast transformed into their fairy tale icons in the preview. While it was indeed a tease, there was one noticeable name barely given a glance – Johnny Depp. With the movie’s release a mere two months away now, EW has bombarded newsstands with multiple glossy covers featuring the cast. And yes, there’s one of Monsieur Depp.
In terms of tone, the covers are a smidge baffling when compared to the teaser trailer and earlier stills. Whereas Meryl Streep’s Witch has previously appeared to be the stuff of childhood nightmares, she’s now morphed into a back-combed blue minx. We can only assume this is »

See photos: 16 Actor Replacements That Worked – Can ‘Fifty Shades’ Pull it Off Too?

Standing next to him is Red Riding Hood, played by Lilla Crawford. Meryl Streep‘s sinister Witch character is paired with the long-blonde locks. »

Entertainment Weekly has released a series of magazine covers for an upcoming issue that focuses on Disney's upcoming film Into the Woods. Each of the covers features two characters from the movie, and one of these covers gives us our first good full-frontal look at Johnny Deep as The Wolf. Up until this point, all we've seen of the character is of him hiding behind a tree. I've got to be honest… I wasn't expecting that look for the character. I wasn't expecting to see more of a wolf-like face, but this works! I'm sure all the girls that have a crush on Depp will appreciate that they can see his face.

“I’ve been offered many witches over the years, starting when I was 40, and I said no to all of them,” Meryl Streep told Entertainment Weekly in this week’s issue of the magazine wherein “Into The Woods” graces the cover. Clearly she changed her mind for Rob Marshall’s dark adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's beloved musical. “But this was really fun because it played with the notion of what witches mean. They represented age and ugliness and scary powers we don’t understand. So here’s my opportunity to say, here’s what you wish for when you’re getting old.” Intertwining the plots of several Brothers Grimm fairy —"Little Red Riding Hood," "Jack and the Beanstalk," "Rapunzel," and "Cinderella"— the musical is about a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Streep) who has put a curse on them. »

Richard Taylor, who runs Weta Workshop with his wife, Tania Rodger, believes in creative diversity. He has won Oscars in three categories: two for makeup, two in visual effects and one for costume design. It reflects his philosophy, “We can only survive if we innovate every day.”
The company built 48,000 individual items (props, costumes, etc.) for “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy. For the “Hobbit” trio, the team produced 11,862 prosthetics, with 5,493 of these just for the Dwarves. Approximately 4 tons of silicone was used to make facial prosthetics for all the characters. In the past year, Ww has worked on 30 projects, including six films, plus numerous TV shows and videogames. “It adds to the tapestry of our staff’s lives,” says Taylor. “It’s added to the richness. »

Despite his presences of his name being heralded in all the promotional material, Into the Woods has being a relatively Johnny Depp-less affair. Now, we have the first look at his character of The Wolf on one of a series of covers brought out by EW, showing that he is quite the sharp dresser. The rest of the cast, including Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, and Meryl Streep (looking a lot less witchy than in the first poster), also make an appearance. Check them out below. Released Dec 25th USA / Jan 9th 2015 Ireland & UK »

Back in June, Disney released new photos from the upcoming musical Into the Woods that teased Johnny Depp as The Wolf, without showing his face. Today, fans finally get to see the first full look at the villainous character in one of four new Entertainment Weekly magazine covers.
Johnny Depp's The Wolf is pictured alongside Lilla Crawford's Little Red Riding Hood in the first cover, with Meryl Streep (The Witch) and Mackenzie Mauzy (Rapunzel) gracing the second cover. Anna Kendrick (Cinderella) and Chris Pine (The Prince) are showcased on the third cover, with James Corden (The Baker) and Emily Blunt (The Baker's Wife) seen on the fourth and final collectible cover.
The story centers on The Baker and his wife, who attempt to lift a dreadful Witch's curse by entering an enchanted forest filled with several classic characters. Director Rob Marshall (Chicago) reveals that, while several of these »
I clearly went for the click bait title on this one. Obviously, Johnny Depp is a big star, and he has the potential to draw in a lot of people to this film (even though lately that has not been the case). The first Into The Woods trailer (included at the bottom of this post) kept the look of Depp's Wolf a secret, only showing his hand, but now Entertainment Weekly is giving us the first full look at what the Wolf looks like, and I have to say, I am a fan. When the film was announced, I had a horrible feeling the Wolf would be just some CG thing, and actually, he is far less Wolf than he is guy in a fur suit. It is an interesting design choice, and I hope it pays off. Considering the small role the Wolf plays in the film (yes, Depp fans, »

There's still some big questions about Disney's upcoming adaptation of the classic musical "Into The Woods," one of which being the look of Johnny Depp's 'Big Bad Wolf' character in the Rob Marshall-directed film.

There are stills of Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine and Meryl Streep in Into the Woods and we also got a few solid shots of them in the film’s trailer too, but what about Johnny Depp’s The Wolf? Depp got a title card in that trailer, but then he just hid behind a tree. Now it turns out, that was a good thing. The new edition of Entertainment Weekly puts the spotlight on Rob Marshall’s rendition of the Stephen Sondheim musical with four different collector’s covers and one of them gives us our very first look at Depp in full costume and makeup. Hit the jump to check out the Into the Woods covers for yourself. The film also stars Lilla Crawford, Mackenzie Mauzy, Daniel Huttlestone, Tracey Ullman and Christine Baranski, and is set to hit theaters on December 25th. Here’s what »

It has the potential to be one of the biggest movies of the holiday season, a musical adaptation of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine.s Tony Award-winning show that brings together an A-list ensemble (and prepares for a possible Oscar run). But while we have been reporting on the snippets of information tied to Into the Woods, we really haven.t seen much from its mega-watt stars . and the fairy tale characters that they plan to play on screen. At least, until now. Entertainment Weekly has gone with a series of Into the Woods character poses for the cover of this week.s issue, a Holiday Movie Preview that dedicates a chunk of space to director Rob Marshall.s upcoming holiday musical. Which is understandable. Even those who know nothing about the source material (raising my hand) recognize the sheer magnitude of the cast, which includes: Johnny Depp; Meryl Streep »

Manuel here with some Streeptastic news.
Meryl Streep has just signed on to play Florence Foster Jenkins in an upcoming Stephen Frears film. Florence will follow the eponymous protagonist, a New York heiress whose lack of musical talent didn’t stop her from pursuing a career in opera in the early twentieth century. This should be good news for us Streep fans because it means we may get three back-to-back-to-back musically-centered Meryl films in a row. Remember she’s set to play Maria Callas for Mike Nichols’ HBO adaptation of Terence McNally’s Master Class while she’s currently filming Ricky and the Flash, the Diablo Cody-penned Jonathan Demme film about an aging rock-star. More thrillingly, the Frears/Demme/Nichols triple punch is the closest we’ve gotten in a while to Streep committing to working with top-tier directing talent (no offense to David Frankel, Philippa Lloyd and Philip Noyce »

Ever since Chicago ushered the movie-musical back to the big screen with panache, the song-and-dance genre has had a bumpy road in Hollywood (here’s lookin’ at you, Rock of Ages). But the man behind the 2002 Best Picture winner hopes to turn the trend around with another tuner, this time based on one of Broadway’s most beloved Stephen Sondheim musicals. Director Rob Marshall takes the reins on Disney’s Into the Woods, and he’s gathered an A-list cast and creative team to conjure up a glossy adaptation of the 1987 fairy tale fantasy that’s decidedly different from any »
