Set to be released on 21st January, Into The Woods By David Mark follows investigative journalist Rowan Blake who is looking for an idea for his next book. He’s soon reminded of the case of three school-friends thirty years ago who went missing after taking a walk in the woods. Only two came back – their memories a jumble of hallucinations and twisted visions. But why did nobody look for the missing girl?
Directed by Rob Marshall and adapted to the screen by James Lapine from his and Stephen Sondheim‘s Tony Award-winning Broadway musical of the same name, Into The Woods is a modern twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales. A witch (Meryl Streep) tasks a childless baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt) with procuring magical items from classic fairy tales to reverse the curse put on their family tree, intertwining the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy).
