Anna Kendrick & Joss Whedon Muse On INTO THE WOODS Mash-Up With THE AVENGERS
Popular rising screen star and onetime Broadway headliner Anna Kendrick shares her enthusiasm and insight on her major role of Cinderella in the forthcoming big screen movie musical adaptation of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's fairy tale-themed musical INTO THE WOODS byway of an amusing Twitter exchange with THE AVENGERS director and admitted musicals addict Joss Whedon earlier this weekend.
Whedon began by alluding to a song for the currently developing THE AVENGERS 2, writing, "Hey JJ I need "yub yub" song for avengers 2 but you can say "Jedi Assemble" or have Thor please call
Kendrick responded multiple times, first comedically relaying, "
@josswhedon print this tweet. cover my walls in it. seal me in my tomb."
Then, Whedon responded by referring to her notable INTO THE WOODS character, Cinderella, Tweeting, "
@AnnaKendrick47 now I'm blushing red so okay Cinderella can be an Avenger she'll have fireplace cleaning powers & a featured solo in yub yub."
Kendrick enthusiastically replied shortly thereafter, sharing, "
@josswhedon TWEETS ARE BINDING LEGAL CONTRACTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Additionally, Whedon then posted a musing on INTO THE WOODS itself and its influence on his recent hit horror film THE CABIN IN THE WOODS, relating, "JUST NOW get what an influence "Into The Woods" was on "Cabin". Wow. Sorry/grateful, Mr S.
Actually, we're just grateful you shared this with the world, Joss - mermen and Mermans, included!
