INTO THE WOODS cast update–Jake Gyllenhaal and Chris Pine may play singing princes

Rob Marshall’s upcoming film of Stephen Sondheim’s award-winning musical Into the Woods is attracting plenty of talent: Johnny Depp (as the Wolf), Meryl Streep (as the Witch) and James Corden (as the Baker) are already on board, and now Jake Gyllenhaal and Chris Pine are in discussions to join the cast. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Gyllenhaal and Pine “would play the musical’s two princes, Cinderella’s Prince and Rapunzel’s Prince, brothers who are pompous and self-absorbed.” Neither Gyllenhaal nor Pine has sung on-screen before, but “the two actors met and even sang for director Rob Marshall for their respective parts and are expected to receive offers to join the star-studded cast.” Fantastic!
