Into the Woods Poster — Meryl Streep Looks Creepy As The Evil Witch
The three time Oscar Award winner is never shy of taking on a challenging role. In Into the Woods Meryl will not only be taking on the role of, “The Witch,” but she will be singing!
On the poster, Meryl looks totally transformed — not to mention terrifying! She is hunched over, extremely pale and sporting a massive head of lavender hair and extremely long fingernails! She certainly looks the part!
In the film, Meryl’s character places a curse on the baker and his wife so that they will not be able to have children after she caught the bakers father stealing magic beans from her garden.
In order to reverse the curse, the couple must find four key ingredients,”the cow as white as milk, the cape as red as blood, the hair as yellow as corn, and the slipper as pure as gold.”
Meryl will be reuniting with several of her former co-stars. Emily Blunt, who she worked with on, The Devil Wears Prada will be playing the bakers wife, while her Mama Mia! co-star, Christine Baranski will step into the role of Cinderella’s step mother!
This is not the first time that Meryl has had to exercise her vocal cords for a role. Back in 2008, the icon took on another legendary theater production turned movie when she played Donna Sheridan in, Mama Mia!
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Stephen Sondheim, who worked on the original dark and edgy stage production revealed that the Disney movie will be quite different from the version you are used to, and will be more kid friendly.
Spoilers ahead! He revealed,“You will find in the movie that Rapunzel does not get killed, and the prince does not sleep with the baker’s wife.”
He also revealed that because of the bakers wife’s loyalty, a new song will be incorporated into the film. “The popular song “Any Moment” has been replaced with another song they have written.”
