The Hollywood Reporter says that Johnny Depp will work once again with director Rob Marshall (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), this time for the famed fairy tale musical Into The Woods.
Into The Woods Playbill Description:
A childless baker and his wife endeavor to lift their family curse by journeying into the woods, where they encounter Rapunzel (and her witchly “mother”), Cinderella, Jack (of Beanstalk fame), Little Red Riding Hood and other classic fairy tale characters, and they all must learn the responsibility that comes with getting what you want.
The last musical film that Depp did was Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007).
Marshall has a strong theatre background having been nominated for six Tony awards in his lifetime. He transitioned his theatrical talents to the big screen in 2002 with Chicago starring Richard Gere. The film earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Director.
In 2009 Marshall directed the musical film Nine starring Daniel Day-Lewis.
