'Into the Woods': Meryl Streep Unrecognizable as the Witch in First Official Photo
Disney's upcoming adaptation of the Broadway musical also stars Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, and Johnny Depp.
Disney has released the first photo of Meryl Streep as the witch in Into the Woods, its upcoming adaptation of the Broadway musical.
The actress is unrecognizable in a long, matted gray wig and makeup designed to make her look, well, witch-like.
The movie, a modern twist on several Brothers Grimm fairy tales, explores the consequences of the quests of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel -- all tied together by an original story involving a baker, his wife, and the witch who cast a spell on them.
In the film, Streep's character is looking to reverse a curse so that her beauty may be restored.
Into the Woods, which is in production in England, is directed by Rob Marshall, and features a star-studded cast that also includes Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, and Johnny Depp.
Composer Stephen Sondheim is contributing a brand new song to the movie, which hits theaters Dec. 25, 2014.
