If it isn’t superheroes, it’s fairy tales, right? That seems to be the way of pop culture these days, and you only have to scan our front page to see it’s true; what with articles about Age of Ultron, Batman vs Superman, Cinderella or Frozen. And here’s further proof, our first look at Meryl Streep as The Witch in the upcoming big screen adaptation of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine‘s Into The Woods.

To truly appreciate what a remarkable make-up job they’ve done on Meryl, go check out the super hi-res image provided by Bleeding Cool.

She isn’t the only big name filming the latest movie musical, Into The Woods also stars Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, Johnny Depp as The Big Bad Wolf, plus Chris Pine and Jake Gyllenhaal as a couple of princes among others. Honestly, this has the makings of being a really spectacular adaptation. Lapine has written the screenplay and Sondheim is providing a new song. Rob Marshall is directing, and as shown by his previous work on films like Chicago, I believe he’s quite capable of helming a movie musical.

Any interest in Into The Woods?
