Chris Pine & Billy Magnussen Film INTO THE WOODS; Week 4 Round-Up With Depp, Etc.
Dashing fellow princes Chris Pine and Billy Magnussen were spotted on location in the UK on the set of the big screen adaptation of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's fairy tale musical INTO THE WOODS late this week, donning duds worthy of royalty and decked out in Oscar-winner Colleen Atwood's princely finery.
Accompanying a white steed as Rapunzel's Prince, Magnussen can be seen sporting an almost contemporary-styled studded black leather ensemble in the new shots captured on location, off-setting the muted gray and gold filigree of the outfit worn by Cinderella's Prince, played by Pine.
Given that the characters evidently appear in this scene together, could this be a glimpse of their sparkling comedy duet "Agony"? Well, only fourteen more months until we find out for sure!
Of note, yesterday, a shot was captured in Hambledon, Hampshire, where a thatch-roofed house, scant shrubbery and a faux beanstalk portion making up Jack's beanstalk now stand in preparation for on location shooting of additional scenes pertaining to Jack and his Mother's storyline sometime soon. Check out BroadwayWorld's article on the matter here.
Also, earlier this week, INTO THE WOODS co-star Johnny Depp was seen at Abbey Road studios laying down tracks and has reportedly arrived on the Shepperton Studios set of the big budget Disney film, set to film scenes as the Wolf, and photos of the actor on location have appeared on social media, as well. Check out BroadwayWorld's article on the matter here.
