Johnny Depp will reunite with his “Pirates of the Caribbean : On Stranger Tides” director Rob Marshall for a movie musical, “Into the Woods”.

Based on the Broadway musical of the same name, the Disney production is Depp’s first sing-song movie since Tim Burton’s “Sweeney Todd” in 2007.

The Hollywood Reporter says, “Into the Woods is a mashup of classic fairy tales that revolves around a childless Baker and his wife, who attempt to lift a family curse by journeying into the woods to confront the Witch that put the spell on them. Along the way, they encounter a group of characters including Rapunzel, Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood.”

Meryl Streep, who proved what a stellar voice she has in “Mamma Mia!”, will be joining Depp in the film.

“Streep will play the plum role of the vain and charismatic witch. In what would be a key supporting role, Depp will play a hungry and sexy variation of the fairy tale wolf character.”

James Lapine wrote the screenplay, based on his book for the 1986 musical.
