Here’s a look at the rumors shaking up the entertainment world this week.
Into the Woods will not be tame
Earlier this year Stephen Sondheim made some controversial comments about the upcoming Disney film version of his beloved, dark musical Into the Woods, suggesting that the movie was going to be a tame, sanitized version of the musical and would even cut some songs. Now director Rob Marshall has told Entertainment Weekly that the movie will be full of all the death and sex and songs that fans love in the musical. “I’m actually really impressed Disney’s doing this film, because it’s very brave. I don’t feel we’ve watered it down in any way, shape, or form. We’ve just made it a film. But I never thought in terms of ‘the Disney’ of it all, ever. None of us did,” Marshall said to the publication.
