The past Sondheim film adaptations have been one sort of dog or another (with the occasional glimmer of greatness, like Diana Rigg and Alan Rickman).

Now it looks like INTO THE WOODS is being given a go, by Rob Marshall (who thankfully will have very little real dancing to mangle this time).



And why is Johnny Depp in everything now? If he's playing the old man character, he thankfully won't have much to sing (he sounded too much like Davy Jones in SWEENEY TODD for my taste).

Depp is playing the Big Bad Wolf. And why oh why is Hollywood still doing the "hide the fact that it's a musical" thing?

Exactly !

The other thing Hollywood seems to be scared to death of at present is COLOUR !

I see that “Into the Woods” has been shot in the now ubiquitous “Sludge-O-Vision” !

They could save themselves a lot of money by just shooting in black & white. Then we wouldn’t have to see ANY of those nasty colours, would we ? mad

Ha, I've been moaning about that for years. It seems for the past 10-14 years the first thing they do when starting the DI colour grade is to wind out 30%-50% of the colour! Not quite everyone, Quintin Tarantino, whatever you think of his movies, at least they look great.
