Emily Blunt in Talks to Join All-Star Cast of ‘Into the Woods’ Movie Musical

So, every single A-list star that you care about is going to be in director Rob Marshall’s screen adaptation of the classic Sondheim musical Into the Woods. Adding her name to the ever-growing list of stars is Emily Blunt, who The Hollywood Report reports (and they report like it’s in the title of their magazine), is in talks to play the Baker’s Wife. She doesn’t get a name, but it’s the female lead (though The Witch, which Meryl Streep snatched up, gets all the good songs). 

If Blunt joins the cast, she’ll be playing alongside Streep and Johnny Depp, and possibly Chris Pine and Jake Gyllenhaal, who are in negotiations. They still haven’t cast the roles of Little Red Riding Hood or Jack (of Beanstalk fame), but at this point they’re probably going to end up being played by a Fanning sister and Justin Bieber.
