First Look At Little Red Riding Hood's Woods! Crawford & Kendrick INTO THE WOODS Update
A preliminary peek at the mass of actual real-life trees and greenery that will act as the on location foundation for scenes depicting Little Red Riding Hood's interactions with the Wolf (played by Johnny Depp) and her Granny in the big screen adaptation of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's celebrated fairy tale-themed musical INTO THE WOODS has been revealed.
Lilla Crawford, who portrays Little Red Riding Hood in the feature film, took to Twitter this weekend to post a shot from the set and caption it, "Into the Woods to Grandmothers house!!!!:) #ITW #London #intothewoods".
Previously, Crawford shared a selfie of herself and INTO THE WOODS co-star Daniel Huttlestone, who plays Jack, as well as a photo of her director's chair on set emblazoned with her character's iconic name - the latter a social media trope of many cast members so far, incidentally - available here.
Additionally, Anna Kendrick, who essays the role of Cinderella, just posted a pic of some hi-tech motion-capture filming and green-screen work currently being conducted on the set of INTO THE WOODS at Shepperton Studios in the UK, as well, via social media, caustically commenting, "Motion control: the world's most expensive game of pin the tail on the donkey."
Last week, an image 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. Plus, see the Week 4 filming round-up here, including new shots of princes Chris Pine and Billy Magnussen filming new scenes and much more.
Also last 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.
