Home Celebrity Movie Version of “Into the Woods” Gets Its Baker: Tony Winner James...

Exclusive: James Corden, the 2012 Tony Award winner for “One Man, Two Guvnors,” is headed to a big role in a big movie. Corden will play The Baker in Rob Marshall’s screen adaptation of Stephen Sondheim’s “Into the Woods.” I’ve confirmed this. Meantime, Johnny Depp will play The Wolf. There’s still a big rumor going around that Meryl Streep will play The Witch. And who is up for The Baker’s Wife? I’m told that may go to the very funny Nina Arianda. I think Nina is swell. But Amy Adams was a knockout as The Baker’s Wife last summer in Shakespeare in the park in New York. I’d love to see her try it on film. More buzz on “Into the Woods” will be coming shortly…

  1. I think Audra McDonald would be perfect for the role of the Baker’s Wife. I am a huge Sondheim fan and have seen at least 10 productions of Into the Woods.
