by Rialto Chatter - Jan 1, 2001 exclusively broke the news back on January 9, 2012 that the hit open-air production of INTO THE WOODS that played London's Regent's Park Theatre in 2011 would play Central Park this summer, confirmed by an official announcement shortly thereafter. At the time, we reported that 'Casting is said to be underway already for the role of 'The Witch' and that the producers are seeking a big name.' Now, sources tell us that talks are underway with stage and screen legend Meryl Streep for 'The Witch' and with Anne Hathaway for the role of 'Cinderella'. This would mark a reunion for the pair who appeared together on screen in THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA and would mark the return for both to Shakespeare in the Park. Streep appeared in Brecht's MOTHER COURAGE in 2006, and Hathaway in TWELTH NIGHT in 2009.
