Tony-Winner James Corden Goes 'Into the Woods' with Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep

By Lindsey DiMattina, Hollywood Staff

Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep have a new co-star in the Disney adaption of Stephen Sondheim's musical, Into the Woods. According to a Disney casting notice, English stage, film, and television actor James Corden is now set to star as the baker, who will live next door to Streep's character, the witch.

Last year, Corden won a Tony Award for his work in the Broadway play, One Man, Two Guvnors. In Into the Woods, he will be starring in the leading role. His character, the baker, is a married man who dreams of having a baby even after the witch (Streep) casts a spell on his wife causing her to be barren.

Depp is scheduled to play the wolf and Streep the witch, who conspires to teach important lessons to famous fairytale characters like Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, and Rapunzel. Academy Award-winning director Rob Marshall - who directed Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stronger Tides - is helming the adaption. Into the Woods is scheduled begin filming in London in September.
