intoTheWoodsTitle

As you may know by now, the popular Broadway musical about mashed up of fairy tales of Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella and Jack & The Beanstalk, is being turned into a movie. While it’s a favorite among many for Bernadette Peters’ turn as the Witch, the best part of the Into The Woods has to be the star-studded cast. Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Chris Pine, Anna Kendrick, Christine Baranski, Emily Blunt and Tracey Ullman have all signed up to take on our favorite fairy tales. Of course, after all the casting news, fans have been clamoring to see everyone on set. Luckily, JustJared posted a few pictures of what’s in store.

    Yes but can ANY of these actors actually sing?

    Or is this going to be another fiasco like Tim Burton’s massacre of Sweeney Todd?

  • MikeE

    ok, maybe none of them can sing but…Billy Magnussen in those pants? OUCH

    @MikeE: I can assure you that Anna, Billy, James and Christine can all sing. Then there’s Meryl and Johnny. Emily may not be a songstress but you can be assured her acting will make up for it. The others remain to be seen. (IMOP)

    I listened to Chris Pine and Billy Magnussen sing and was far less than impressed. They had typical “stick the microphone up your nose and drawl” voices. That’s fine when you’re singing your emo songs with your garage band, but it’s not when trying to belt out “Agony”. But I’ll wait and see and keep fingers crossed. While I didn’t particularly care for the music Chris Pine sang on the demo I heard (like I said, typical contemporary emo pop) he DID have a pretty voice… just not a powerful one. Magnussen looks boner-ific in his leather pants, but his singing was awful.

    I am VERY upset about the casting for Little Red Riding Hood and Jack. Both actors chosen are FAR too young for the roles. The entire subtext of both roles is completely lost by using little kids. And it makes the LRRH subtext incredibly creepy and pervy.

    My favorite musical as a child growing up is about to become pop culture fodder to make a quick buck :(

    He’ll. Chris Pine can sing like Ed Bassmaster on you tube singing Wrecking Ball and I would still drop to my knees and worship him. Such a babe. Woof.

    @MikeE: My thoughts exactly. Anna showed some pipes in “Pitch Perfect”, but I am not so sure about the others. I guess no one got the memo that Sondheim writes musicals…

  • MikeE

    what they should do is dump the idea of doing a musical and just have two hours of Billy Magnussen in those pants.

    Hell, hand a pair to Chris pine and make it a mini-series!
