Johnny Depp to head Into The Woods with Meryl Streep - report

Johnny Depp is in talks to join Meryl Streep in a new big-screen adaptation of hit stage show Into The Woods.

Streep was confirmed as the upcoming movie musical's evil witch back in February (13), and the Pirates of the Caribbean hunk is now said to have entered into negotiations to play a sexy variation of the big bad wolf.

If he lands the part, it will mark his first singing role since tackling the title character in Tim Burton's Sweeney Todd: The Demon of Fleet Street.

Into The Woods, which unites classic fairy tale characters, is also rumored to feature Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, Christine Baranski as the wicked stepmother and Patrick Wilson as Prince Charming.

Nine and Chicago director Rob Marshall, who worked with Depp on the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean installment, will take charge of the Stephen Sondheim project.
