Rob Marshall and Disney to Adapt Steven Sondheim's Into The Woods

11 January 2012 10:00 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Walt Disney Pictures and Rob Marshall are joining forces again on a new project. Marshall is set to direct a film adaptation of Steven Sondheim's acclaimed Broadway musical, Into The Woods. The project is being produced by Marshall and John DeLuca via their production company Lucamar Productions for Disney. James Lapine, who wrote the stage musical with Stephen Sondheim, is on board to adapt the story for the screen.

This project marks the first film under a new 2-year development deal between Disney and Lucamar. I am not familair with this play but know of Sondheim's work. Marshall continues to deliver blockbusters for Disney, and I am sure that this film will be a hit for the studio. There is a big trend of plays being turned into feature films. Tom Hooper (The Kings Speech) is currently working on Les Miserables. 

Here is some information from the official press release: »
