Meryl Streep Is A Creepy Witch In Maiden Poster For Disney’s Into The Woods

14 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of the more left-field Oscar contenders heading into this year’s awards season is undoubtedly Disney’s musical fairytale, Into The Woods. It’s based on Stephen Sondheim’s atypical and indeed award-winning musical deconstruction of the titular tale, which weaves together a variety of renown fantasy heroes who unite against Meryl Streep’s spiteful witch.

Directed by Chicago’s Rob Marshall, the film is essentially a melting pot of the studio’s beloved characters from the Brothers Grimm catalogue, including Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood and Jack and the Beanstalk, who are all drawn together to face the aforementioned villain thanks to a loveable baker and his wife — played by James Corden and Emily Blunt, respectively.

What’s most impressive about Into The Woods, though, is it’s remarkable ensemble cast, which features the likes of Anna Kendrick, Johnny Deep as The Wolf, Jake Gyllenhaal, Chris Pine and Tracey Ullman. »

15 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Disney has premiered the first poster for Rob Marshall's new musical, Into the Woods, based on the Tony-winning original musical by James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim. Featuring a massive ensemble cast, Into the Woods surrounds a baker and his wife's quest to break a witch's curse in order to start a family.

The film stars Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Chris Pine, Jake Gyllenhaal, Emily Blunt, Tracey Ullman, Anna Kendrick and Billy Magnussen. This is one film that very well could have a big effect on the Oscar race once it arrives on December 25, though Marshall hasn't exactly had the best track record since Chicago as Memoirs of a Geisha and Nine fell rather flat and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides was... well... you know.

Coast Guard Drama 'The Finest Hours' Casts Ben Foster

15 September 2014 4:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ben Foster has signed on to star alongside Chris Pine, Casey Affleck and Holliday Grainger in Disney's The Finest Hours.

The plot is based on the true story of a 1952 Coast Guard rescue mission, following one of the worst storms ever to hit the East Coast, which literally ripped an oil tanker in half. Facing sub-zero temperatures and waves as high as 70 feet, four Coast Guard members set off in a lifeboat to rescue over 30 crew members who were stranded in the sinking vessel. The mission is still considered to be the greatest 'small boat rescue" in Coast Guard history. No details were given for Ben Foster's character.

Craig Gillespie (Million Dollar Arm) is directing from a script by Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson (The Fighter), which was adapted from the book by Casey Sherman and Michael J. Tougias. Production is currently under way.
