Make way for Disney's "Into the Woods" Movie.

Warner Bros. has announced they are shelving the film project The Thin Man which was set to star Johnny Depp and Director Rob Marshall (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides). This setback allows Rob Marshall to move forward with Disney in the production of Into the Woods, a film adaptation of the classic 1987 Broadway musical written by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine.

    Into the Woods entertwines the stories of Cinderella, Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack & the Beanstalk in a dark and sometimes gruesome tale of morality and consequences. James Lapine (the original writer) is set to adapt the two-act musical to screen. After reading the plot on Wikipedia, I'm assuming there will be some major changes in the script to make it slightly more Disney-like.

    No actors have been cast and no date has been set for release. Stay tuned for updates on this and other Disney productions in the works.
