Emily Blunt, Chris Pine, & Jake Gyllenhaal Join 'Into the Woods'?

Emily Blunt, Chris Pine, and Jake Gyllenhaal are all reportedly in talks to join the star-studded cast of the movie musical Into the Woods, according to Variety.

The 30-year-old actress would play the baker’s wife, the female lead of the film opposite the already confirmed James Corden as the baker. Chris and Jake are reportedly in talks to play Rapunzel and Cinderella’s Princes.

It is also being reported that Christine Baranski is in talks to play Cinderella’s Wicked Stepmother, according to The Wrap.

The musical “revolves around a childless baker and his wife who attempt to lift a family curse by journeying into the woods to confront the witch that put the spell on them. Along the way, they encounter Rapunzel, Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk‘s Jack, Little Red Riding Hood and other classic fairy tale characters.”

Meryl Streep and Johnny Depp have already been confirmed to join the Rob Marshall-directed flick.

    It’s viceversa:
    Jake will play Cinderella’s Prince and Chris will play Rapunzel’s Prince according to THR and Indiewire.
    The sibling Princes duet is the best and funniest of all.

    This is crazy. None of these thespians are strong vocalists ( including Streep ) . You need strong vocals to do Sondheim. This movie is going to be awful. Didn’t Rob Marshall learn from his mistake , when he directed Nine ?! That film had some of the worst singers- Daniel Day-Lewis, Nicole Kidman, Judi Dench, Loren, Marion Cotillard, Kate Hudson, and Penelope Cruz. I just hate when Hollywood destroy classic musicals.
