Oh man, you guys!
There's been rumblings about this that have had us FREAKING OUT with excitement for months upon months, but now, it's THISCLOSE to OFFICIAL:
Prepare yourselves, because Johnny Depp AND Meryl Streep are just an i-dotting and t-crossing away from being OFFICIALLY involved in the upcoming, big-screen adaptation of the Broadway smash Into The Woods!
Rumors about the pair's involvement have been running rampant ever since the project was announced by Disney 16 months ago, especially since director Rob Marshall worked with Johnny on Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Meryl's name was dropped in connection with the witch during a table read in October!
However, sources close to production are now confirming that the pair “almost have their deals wrapped up for the film.”
These two have both shown off their singing chops before, and we just KNOW their vocal stylingz will fit right in with Stephen Sondheim's gorgeous melodies and lyrics!
Fingers crossed that the rest of the cast will be just as PERFECT for the flick as these two are!
What do U think?? Are U excited for Into the Woods?!
