The legendary Meryl Streep is in talks to play the evil witch in the movie version of Steven Sondheim's legendary musical Into the Woods. The award-winning Broadway musical epitomized the phrase "fractured fairy tale," as Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Jack (of the Beanstalk fame) and a childless baker and his wife venture into the woods to have their wishes granted... and discover that real life seldom works like a fairy tale. The movie's been in development at Disney for a year or so, but we're guessing that if it all works out, The Mary Sue is right — Streep might as well clear a space on her mantle for another Oscar.
