Stephen Sondheim To Pen New Songs For 'Into The Woods' Movie


Broadway takes Hollywood as 'Woods' and 'Jersey Boys' move onto the screen

It's shaping up to be a fine day for Broadway shows with big-screen aspirations.

Both Jersey Boys and Into The Woods are reportedly getting the Tinsletown treatment according to The Hollywood Reporter. Chicago mastermind Rob Marshall is slated to direct a film version of the fairytale mash-up Into The Woods which he says might include new songs from its writer, Broadway legend Stephen Sondheim.

"He's a genius when it comes to his score," Marshall told the magazine about Sondheim, "but what's so extraordinary is, he really understands all the elements of theater--the choreography, the book and the production design--and has an amazing sense of the whole."

Also heading to your local Cineplex is Jersey Boys, the Tony Award-winning Frankie Valli jukebox musical that's done more than a billion dollars in ticket sales on Broadway. John Logan, who penned Martin Scorcese's Hugo is reportedly developing a script--not a bad choice, considering he wrote Broadway's Red.
