Careful the tale you tell, that is the spell....

For the umpteenth time in a decade, someone is trying to get Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's most accessible work, "Into the Woods" made into a feature film. A still from the original Broadway production is above.

The Hollywood Reporter is, well, reporting that Tony and Academy-Award nominated director Rob Marshall has been tapped to direct a big screen version for Disney that is to feature a book by Mr. Lapine and an alleged score feature a few new songs by Mr. Sondheim himself.

To me, the show seems to be an odd fit for Disney. It's a bit too cynical (but, then again, what do I know).

Let the fantasy casting begin!

  1. Then again, it would be cool to see the Witch turn up on Disney's other fairytale property, "Once Upon a Time."

    She could give the Mayor Reginia a run for her money!
