Joss Whedon Visits INTO THE WOODS Film Set! Anna Kendrick & More Tweet
Internationally acclaimed THE AVENGERS and MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING director Joss Whedon is an avowed musicals fanatic - look no further than his movie musical project DR. HORRIBLE'S SING-A-LONG BLOG, starring Neil Patrick Harris, for further proof of that - and the theatre geek was recently given a golden opportunity to witness movie musical magic in the making byway of attending the filming of "No One Is Alone" on the currently in-production feature film adaptation of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's fairy tale-themed piece INTO THE WOODS.
Whedon took to Twitter earlier this week to write of his experience on the Rob Marshall-directed set, "Also got to see
@AnnaKendrick47 sing to @LILLACRAWFORD on the set of "Into The Woods" and then SHUT UP DUST GOT IN MY EYE #iwish #iknow".

Also, Whedon posted to Anna Kendrick's Twitter account about the set visit, as well, commenting, "
@AnnaKendrick47 if Rob Marshall wants tears on set he should stick to old-fashioned pet-threatening. #hardtoseethelightnow #justdontletitgo".
Additionally, Kendrick recently shared a sci-fi themed shot of herself onset, in costume, highlighted by the elaborate movie lighting being employed for the big budget production - evoking GAME OF THRONES, as she humorously noted.
