Meryl Streep in talks for wicked witch role in Into the Woods

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides director Rob Marshall is the man behind the ambitious project, which brings fairytale characters like Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella and Rapunzel to life.

Streep missed a reading of the film on Monday (01Oct12), but it was still an all-star affair, according to BroadwayWorld.com.

Anna Kendrick, Christine Baranski, Cheyenne Jackson, Allison Janney and Patrick Wilson were in attendance.

Donna Murphy was drafted in as The Witch for the rehearsal.
