James Corden Tweets From INTO THE WOODS Set; Comments On 'Incredible' Meryl Streep
Starring in the major role of the Baker in the new big budget silver screen adaptation of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's celebrated fairy tale-themed musical INTO THE WOODS, recent Tony Award winner James Corden has continually provided updates throughout the ongoing filming process and has now provided a particularly juicy update involving the one and only Witch of these dark and mysterious woods, played by none other than three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep.
Corden took to Twitter earlier this week to write, "Today was one of the best days filming I've ever had.
#ItTakesTwo #IntoTheWoods" with the "#It Takes Two" in reference to one of his character's memorable duets with the Baker's Wife, played in the film by Emily Blunt.
Soon thereafter, Corden was questioned via social media as to what it was like to work with a stage and screen legend like Meryl Streep, to which he replied, "It's absolutely incredible x".
Prior to these Tweets, Corden also shared a candid shot from the Shepperton Studios set, as well, featuring a plaster statue emerging feet first from within a dumpster spotted on the lot, captioning it, "These are the sort of things you see around shepperton studios!!!"
Filming on the Rob Marshall-directed Disney feature film is currently underway on soundstages at Shepperton Studios and on location in the UK, following soundtrack recording sessions conducted in September.
The confirmed complete cast for INTO THE WOODS is as follows: Meryl Streep as The Witch, James Corden as The Baker, Emily Blunt as The Baker's Wife, Johnny Depp as The Wolf, Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, Chris Pine as Cinderella's Prince, Billy Magnussen as Rapunzel's Prince, Mackenzie Mauzy as Rapunzel, Lucy Punch as Lucinda, Tammy Blanchard as Florinda, Christine Baranski as Cinderella's Stepmother and Tracey Ullman as Jack's Mother, with Lilla Crawford as Little Red Riding Hood and Daniel Huttlestone as Jack.
