INTO THE WOODS (2014): Meryl Streep Takes on an Unusual Role

Meryl Streep Into the Woods

Meryl Streep will star as a witch in the new musical film Into the Woods. Her Into the Woods (2014) role will be her most unique yet. Not only will she portray a witch but she will also sing. She is boldly stepping into the fantasy and musical genres. It is a decision only a skilled professional like her can make.

In the newly released set photos, we see Meryl Streep such as we have rarely seen her before: creepy, dark, threatening. Her character stands out with its demonic appearance. The insane look in her eyes in addition to her outfit and her make-up can certainly convince you that Into the Woods will be worth watching because of her alone.

As if the presence of Meryl Streep is not enough, the film will also offer some other great cast members such as Johnny Depp. Unlike Meryl Streep, he has plenty of experience with dark horror fantasy motion pictures. Meryl Streep, however, is probably Hollywood’s greatest living actress right now and no role should be a problem for her.

Into the Woods will be special for its plot as well. Streep’s character will be struggling to break a curse and restore her former beauty. Meanwhile, famous characters like Cinderella and Red Riding Hood will be dealing with challenges of their own. Walt Disney is really making a big step forward by acquiring such an exceptional actress in one of their lavish productions.

Usually, the only problem in Meryl Streep’s films is the fact that she is so good that the rest of the film’s qualities start to pale in comparison. Into the Woods’s script and direction will hopefully be worthy of its superb leading actors. Rob Marshall is directing and when his Academy Award-winning career is taken into account, a failure would be a very unlikely possibility.
