Is Depp playing BOTH wolves or is the Wolf from Little Red Riding Hood also going to be The Big Bad Wolf from the Three Little Pigs?

It's just that in the stage version they are two different Wolves...

Never seen the Into the Woods stage show, but I'm getting awfully tired of this live action, fairy-tale, Brothers Grimm stuff - everything from Ledger & Damon in the Brothers Grimm, the Hansel and Gretel movie, Grimm on TV, Once Upon a Time, Snow White and the Huntsmen - I'm certain I'm forgetting a pile more.  This movie doesn't excite me at all, even with the "studded" cast.  I think I've just about had enough of Johnny Depp in these Fairy Tale roles also...none of this feels original to me.

If they do this any justice at all, it should be an entertaining movie.  Into the Woods puts a fun, dark spin on a lot of familiar fairy tales and actually brings a lot of reality into the mix.  I really enjoyed the show when I saw it.

This SHOULD be good, but it wouldn't be the first time a good musical was poorly adapted for the screen.

And all the queers rejoiced.

I am calling Shenanigans on you Modo. Into The Woods debuted in 1986 in San Diego, and then on Broadway in 1987. It won several Tony awards, including Best Score, Best Book, and Best Actress. Conversely The Brothers Grimm opened in 2005, Hansel and Gretel was 2013, Grimm was 2011, as was Once Upon A Time, and Snow White and the Huntsmen was 2012. So while this version of Into The Woods might be a remake it nonetheless was still the first and therefore is original when compared to the movies and TV shows you mentioned.

@ Muenster:  So you must be dancing your ass off.  Broadway Musicals are not restricted to gays and women.  I took my wife to see this when it was revived with Vanessa Williams playing the witch and I enjoyed it just as much as she did.

 

@ Bunyon: 2 wolves?  I don't remember that.  I'll have to check out prime or netfix.

This is one of my all time favorite musicals and I still watch the original PBS live production (with Bernadette Peters) at least once a year (it is available streaming on Netflix) and I really really hope they don't screw it up!

BTW - There is only 1 wolf in the original version, but  a second wolf (and the pigs) were added in the revival production (which I haven't seen) - that may be some of the confusion.
