There’s been rumblings about this that have had us FREAKING OUT with excitement for months upon months, but now, it’s THISCLOSE to OFFICIAL:
Prepare yourselves, because Johnny Depp AND Meryl Streep are just an i-dotting and t-crossing away from being OFFICIALLY involved in the upcoming, big-screen adaptation of the Broadway smash Into The Woods!
Rumors about the pair’s involvement have been running rampant ever since the project was announced by Disney 16 months ago, especially since director Rob Marshallworked with Johnny on Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Meryl’s name was dropped in connection with the witch during a table read in October!
However, sources close to production are now confirming that the pair “almost have their deals wrapped up for the film.”
These two have both shown off their singing chops before, and we just KNOW their vocal stylingz will fit right in with Stephen Sondheim‘s gorgeous melodies and lyrics!
Fingers crossed that the rest of the cast will be just as PERFECT for the flick as these two are!
What do U think?? Are U excited for Into the Woods?!
Ah, we get it! Because everyone loves a sweet surprise, Steve definitely doesn’t want us reporting about Meryl’s potential involvement!
Coming through loud and clear, Steve-O! We promise not to spoil your secret!
Last week we told you Mrz. Streep, one of Hollywood’s most acclaimed actresses, was itching to play a part in Anchorman: The Legend Continues, the sequel to one of Hollywood’s silliest movies.
At SXSW on Friday — and, while we’re on the subject, do NOT forget to buy tickets for One Night In… Austin — Steve cleared up whether or not the Julie & Juliastar was literally “begging” for screen time.
“Yes [Meryl] was a fan. But there’s no validity to [her begging for a role.]“
Well, obvi! A woman of her remarkable caliber should never beg for anything!
Not for the cookie with the most chocolate chips at the bakery!
And certainly not for a role in a goofy Will Ferrell comedy!
Steve admitted she was interested, though. He said:
“I jokingly said, ‘You should be in it. Meryl said, ‘Could you imagine?’ And it was just that.”
Ahh, we can read between the lines!
Steve is trying to squash rumors of a HIGHlarious Meryl’s cameo so that, if she does appear, fans will have their minds triple BLOWN in theaters!
Kim Kardashian’s film career has really come full circle. Kim started out in the world of cinema by playing a half-dead seal who gets clubbed by Ray-J’s boomerang dick and now she’s starring opposite Ray-J’s sister in a movie where she plays a wooden mannequin who was brought to life (I’m being generous with “brought to life“) when the Blue Fairy pissed on her. This is the trailer for Tyler Perry’s Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor and it’s about a marriage counselor (duh) who confesses (duh) about having an affair with a rich and possibly evil man, because her boring husband puts her pussy to sleep.
The cast list reads like a game of One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other. It stars Denise from Full House, Vanessa Williams (doing some kind of Caribbean accent), Lance Gross, Brandy, Robbie Jones and Kim Kardashian.
Kim must’ve went to the same acting academy as Bristol Palin, because they both have the emotional range of a warped wooden butt plug. I’ve had interactions with Siri that were more human and natural than the interaction Kim has with Denise from Full House in that trailer. On a positive note, at least we know that Kim can sort of read since she obviously read those lines off of cue cards. And by “cue cards,” I mean penises. They wrote her lines on penises.
Meryl Streep answered the question that’s on everyone’s mind at the Women In Film 2012 Crystal + Lucy Awards on Tuesday: will she reprise her role as Miranda Priestly in Revenge WearsPrada: The Devil Returns!?!?
Even though she had no idea there was a sequel in the works, the Oscar winner surprisingly said:
“Yeah…no, no, is there one? I’ve never heard about it. But, sure, I mean I’d have to lose the fucking weight, but I would do that, yeah.”
Ha! We’re loving Miz Streep’s honesty, but how AH-MAY-ZING is The Devil Wears Prada 2 going to be now that Meryl is on-board!
