The Disney musical Into the Woods technically follows a baker and his wife (played by James Corden and Emily Blunt) on a quest to reverse a curse that keeps them from starting a family.  But the sell is in the twist: the couple encounter fairy tale characters like Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, and Rapunzel along the way.  Director Rob Marshall recruited a stellar cast to portray the Brothers Grimm creations, including Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep, Chris Pine, Christine Baranski, Tracey Ullman, Anna Kendrick, and Jake Gyllenhaal.

Unfortunately, we have to scratch that last name.  Gyllenhaal had to bow out of the project due to scheduling issues with the independent thriller Nightcrawler.  Details after the jump.
