INTO THE WOODS Featurette: Meryl Streep Sings "Stay With Me"


A new featurette has been released for Rob Marshall's "Into the Woods", the adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's musical of the same name. This new featurette focuses almost entirely on Meryl Streep and her performance. It also features a lengthy clip in which Streep performs part of the song "Stay With Me". One thing's certain. We're probably looking at another Oscar nomination for Streep. The film also stars James Corden, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Johnny Depp, Lilla Crawford, Daniel Huttlestone, Tracey Ullman, Billy Magnussen, Lucy Punch, Mackenzie Mauzy and Christine Baranski.

"Into the Woods" opens in theaters on December 25th.

Watch the featurette after the jump.

Official Synopsis
"“Into the Woods” is a modern twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy)—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them.

Rob Marshall, the acclaimed filmmaker behind the Academy Award®-winning musical “Chicago” and Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” directs the film, which is based on the Tony®-winning original musical by James Lapine, who also penned the screenplay, and legendary composer Stephen Sondheim, who provides the music and lyrics. Produced by Marshall, John DeLuca, “Wicked” producer Marc Platt and Callum McDougall, “Into the Woods” will be released in theaters Dec. 25, 2014."
