First Look At Jack's Beanstalk For INTO THE WOODS Movie
As the second month of filming begins at Shepperton Studios and on location throughout the UK, yet another glimpse into director Rob Marshall's rich cinematic world for Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's celebrated fairy tale musical INTO THE WOODS has been revealed via social media - this time, the famous beanstalk figuring in to the story of Jack.
As portrayed in the film by LES MISERABLES stage and screen standout Daniel Huttlestone, the film adaptation of the theatrical property will certainly be bringing the character back to his roots, as it were, with an adolescent in the part.
Also of note, the shot was captured in Hambledon, Hampshire, where a thatch-roofed house, scant shrubbery and the beanstalk portion pictured itself now stand in preparation for on location shooting of scenes pertaining to Jack and his Mother's storyline.
Previously, images of Daniel Huttlestone as Jack and Tracey Ullman as his mother in costume and filming scenes alongside the notable cow were leaked, showcasing the actors in action but not yet giving us a glimpse of the iconic beanstalk that figures so prominently into their story.
Earlier this week, INTO THE WOODS co-star Johnny Depp was seen at Abbey Road studios laying down tracks this week 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.
