Rob Marshall Takes On Sondheim's 'Into the Woods,' Signs 2-Year Disney Deal (Exclusive)

'Woods' furthers Marshall’s relationship with Disney, where he made his last film, 2011’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, which has earned just over $1 billion globally.

Oscar-nominated director Rob Marshall is reteaming with Disney for a film adaptation of Into the Woods, the classic 1980s Broadway musical written by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine.Woods furthers Marshall’s relationship with Disney, where he made his last film, 2011’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, which has earned just over $1 billion globally.

Extending that commitment, he tells THR that he and producing partner John DeLuca have signed a two-year, first-look deal with the studio and plan to move more actively into production through their company, LUCAMAR.

“You have to be very careful not to spread yourself so thin that you are doing a lot of nothing,” he cautions, “but we love that idea. Movies for a director take so long — two and a half or three years. It would be nice to be able to develop something and let someone else go off and do it.”

Into the Woods — which intertwines several classic fairytale characters, including Cinderella, Rapunzel and Little Red Riding Hood, with the story of a baker and his wife’s attempt to have a family — returns the helmer and longtime choreographer to the musical genre at which he has excelled with movies including Oscar winner Chicago (2002) and Nine (2009).

He says he first started thinking of it a year ago, while in postproduction on Pirates. After calling Lapine, the two got together in producer Jerry Bruckheimer’s Santa Monica offices.

“We talked about the meaning of it and how timely it is still, and about family – that’s always at the core of our lives,” he says. “James said: ‘But I don’t want to put it in development for another 10 years.’ ” Marshall agreed, and then brought it to Disney Studios chairman Rich Ross and production president Sean Bailey. “They were classy, classy, classy and incredibly generous to us,” he adds,

Lapine is now at work on the script, which Marshall expects to feature new songs by Sondheim.

The project reunites him with the musical giant, for whom Marshall worked as a choreographer twice in the 1990s, with A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and Company. He first met Sondheim at Broadway director Hal Prince’s Christmas party in 1993, when Marshall was choreographing Prince’s stage version of The Kiss of the Spider Woman, his first Broadway outing as choreographer.

“He’s a genius when it comes to his score,” Marshall says of Sondheim, “but what’s so extraordinary is, he really understands all the elements of theater — the choreography, the book and the production design — and has an amazing sense of the whole.”

Marshall at one point had thought of directing Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street, but that fell through because of “timing,” he says. Subsequently, it was made as a film by director Tim Burton, with Depp starring.

There have been several other attempts to bring Into the Woods to the screen.

At one point in 1994, it got as far as a reading at Penny Marshall’s house, with Robin Williams, Goldie Hawn and Cher; later, it was developed at Columbia Pictures with director Rob Minkoff attached and Billy Crystal, Meg Ryan and Susan Sarandon in talks to star.

Now Marshall is at his home base in New York, collaborating extensively on Woods and Thin Man, uncertain which will go first.

“Usually the movie tells you,” he says. “I’ve been working with Billy Ray on Thin Man and he’s writing as we speak. We are very close to having a first draft.” Both projects, he says, “are real collaborative efforts.”

As to the next Pirates, he notes: “Terry [Rossio] is writing it and he’s working incredibly hard and he did a draft and rethought it all and started working on it again. You want to make sure you are asking the audience to come back to see an exciting adventure and it has to reach that caliber, and if not there’s no reason to do it. I know Johnny feels the same way: He needs to see a script, but he would be happy — if it’s the right script — to put that hat and sword back on.”

Non ci credo!!! Da anni si rumoreggiava di questo adattamento ma mai avevo letto il nome della Disney tra i possibili produttori.
Bella mossa!! E siamo a due dopo la cacciata della Carney... La terza?

Il libro si intitola Il mondo incantato ed è scritto da Bruno Bettelheim che è stato uno psicoanalista. Da quello che mi ha detto la mia matrigna (che ha letto il libro per lavoro) è una lettura psicoanalitica delle fiabe...

Tuesday, October 2, 2012; 09:10 AM - by BWW News Desk

As reported back in June, Rob Marshall has made Stephen Sondheim's INTO THE WOODS his next project at Warner Bros/Disney - and a starry reading just has kicked the project off.

BroadwayWorld has confirmed that the cast of the screenplay reading, which took place yesterday, included (in alphabetical order): Nina Arianda as The Baker's Wife; Christine Baranski as the Stepmother; Tammy Blanchard as Florinda; Victoria Clark as Cinderella's Mother/Giant; James Corden as the Baker; David Garrison as the Narrator; Ivan Hernandez as the Wolf; Megan Hilty as Lucinda; Cheyenne Jackson as Rapunzel's Prince; Allison Janney as Jack's Mother; Anna Kendrick as Cinderella; Michael McGrath as the Steward/Baker's Father; Donna Murphy as the Witch; Laura Osnes as Rapunzel; Taylor Trensch as Jack; Casey Whyland as Little Red Riding Hood; and Patrick Wilson as Cinderella's Prince.

The cast for the film has not yet been announced, but BroadwayWorld has learned that stage and screen legend Meryl Streep is in talks to join the film as the Witch, but was unable to make the reading.

James Lapine, the original book writer of INTO THE WOODS, is reworking the script for the screenplay, while Sondheim is expected to contribute some new songs.

Marshall's films have been honored with a total of 23 Academy Award nominations - winning nine, including Best Picture. His most recent film, "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" starring Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz, has grossed over one billion dollars at the worldwide box office becoming the "8th Highest Grossing Picture in History." He is currently developing "The Thin Man" starring Johnny Depp.

Marshall's film "Nine" was nominated for four Academy Awards, five Golden Globes and 10 Critics Choice Awards. His previous directorial efforts include the Academy Award-winning films "Chicago" and "Memoirs of a Geisha." For his work on "Chicago," winner of six Oscars including Best Picture, Marshall received the Directors Guild Award, an Oscar nomination, a Golden Globe Award nomination, a BAFTA nomination, The National Board of Review Award and the New York Film Critics Online Award, both for best directorial debut, as well as the American Choreography Award.

Marshall executive produced, directed and choreographed the NBC television event "Tony Bennett: An American Classic." He won his second Directors Guild Award for this production as well as three Emmy Awards himself for Direction, Choreography and Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Special. He directed and choreographed Disney/ABC's critically acclaimed movie musical "Annie," which received 12 Emmy nominations, a CAS nomination and won the prestigious Peabody Award. Former CAS President Edward L. Moskowitz commented, "It was to great to work with Rob Marshall on "Annie". Rob's depth of experience in live entertainment enhanced his inspirational leadership on the set and I am proud that the Cinema Audio Society has decided to honor him with our Filmmaker Award."

A six-time Tony Award nominee and George Abbott Award winner, Marshall's stage work includes co-directing and choreographing the worldwide award-winning Broadway production of "Cabaret" and directing and choreographing the Broadway revival of "Little Me," starring Martin Short. He made his Broadway choreographic debut with "Kiss of the Spider Woman," directed by Harold Prince, which also played London's West End and Vienna. He followed that with productions of "She Loves Me" on Broadway and London; "Damn Yankees" on Broadway, National Tour and London; Blake Edwards' "Victor/Victoria" on Broadway; "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum" on Broadway; "Company" on Broadway; "The Petrified Forest" at the New York Public Theatre, and "Promises, Promises" for City Center Encores! Additional choreography credits include the Disney/ABC movie musical "Cinderella" (Emmy nomination), the CBS movie musical "Mrs. Santa Claus"(Emmy nomination), and The Kennedy Center Honors (Kander & Ebb and Chita Rivera tributes).

Beh Christine Baranski ha interpretato Tanya accanto a Meryl Streep in "Mamma Mia!", mentre Megan Hilty è nota per il serial musical "Smash", dove interpreta Ivy, e per aver interpretato Glinda in 'Wicked' (ha inoltre doppiato Rosetta nei film di Trilli). Tutti gli attori teatrali (tra cui Donna Murphy che interpreta anche dal vivo la matrigna di Raperonzolo!!) credo si trattino di attori scelti solo per la lettura, può darsi che scelgano poi qualcun'altro di famoso al loro posto...

Assolutamente sì, più sopra c'è il link e vedrai che è stato scritto il 2 di Ottobre (siti autorevoli come Comingsoon.net e Imdb ne riportano la notizia) direi che è affidabile wink.gif (l'autore dell'articolo parla con cognizione di causa circa Into the Woods, il resto lo avrà supposto da profano, leggendo su Wikipedia la cronologia--non aggiornata-- dei lavori di Rob Marshall Saluto.gif ).

Ps: ti sarà sfuggito per la fretta, ma il 'reading' ovviamente non è un 'audition'...niente provini per Meryl, ovvio...semplicemente non ha potuto partecipare alla lettura collettiva della sceneggiatura, cosa che avviene regolarmente per film seri e di una certa importanza, come tu ben conosci wink.gif

Cavolo è vero, hai ragione, per la fretta non ho riflettuto. Ma allora se deve partecipare al reading dovrebbe aver già firmato il contratto!

Meryl Streep in Talks for Lead in Rob Marshall’s INTO THE WOODS; Anna Kendrick, Patrick Wilson, and More Read for Roles
by Adam Chitwood Posted: October 3rd, 2012 at 7:59 am





Following the success (commercially, that is) of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, director Rob Marshall was mulling a couple of projects as his follow-up. After his remake of The Thin Man with Johnny Depp was put on hold, the Chicago director set his sights on returning to the world of song and dance for his next film. Marshall is prepping an adaptation of the fairy tale-themed musical Into the Woods for Disney, and he recently held a star-studded screenplay read that included the likes of Anna Kendrick, Patrick Wilson, Allison Janney, and many more. Additionally, it sounds like he may have settled on Meryl Streep for the lead role of the Witch.

Hit the jump for more, including the full list of actors who were in attendance for the screenplay reading.

News of the reading comes courtesy of Broadway World (via The Film Stage), and here’s a list of the actors that read:

Nina Arianda as The Baker’s Wife
Christine Baranski as the Stepmother
Tammy Blanchard as Florinda
Victoria Clark as Cinderella’s Mother/Giant
James Corden as the Baker
David Garrison as the Narrator
Ivan Hernandez as the Wolf
Megan Hilty as Lucinda
Cheyenne Jackson as Rapunzel’s Prince
Allison Janney as Jack’s Mother
Anna Kendrick as Cinderella
Michael McGrath as the Steward/Baker’s Father
Donna Murphy as the Witch
Laura Osnes as Rapunzel
Taylor Trensch as Jack
Casey Whyland as Little Red Riding Hood
Patrick Wilson as Cinderella’s Prince
It’s very important to note that screenplay reads happen all the time, and the actors that participate aren’t necessarily the actors that are gunning for the roles. The purpose of the read is for the director to hear the script performed out loud, so he can then go back and make the necessary adjustments with the screenwriter. That said, we know Kendrick has a set of killer pipes and I’d love to see her tackle the role of Cinderella in the full feature.

Broadway World also notes that Meryl Streep couldn’t make the reading, but she’s apparently in talks to take on the lead role of the Witch. She made no secret of the fact that she loved doing Mamma Mia!, so it’s not a stretch to see her shining in Into the Woods.

James Lapine, who wrote the book for the stage musical iteration of Into the Woods, is apparently reworking the script while Sondheim is expected to contribute a few new songs to the film. I didn’t think Marshall showed much promise as an action director with On Stranger Tides, but Chicago is incredible so I’m definitely interested in seeing him bring this musical fairy tale to the big screen.


Quindi la vera notizia è che i reading sono fatti da attori importanti!
Confesso Day, che non mi era ben chiara al 100% la differenza tra audition, reading e rehearsal, ma ora tutto è chiaro wink.gif XD
