(PCM) Johnny Depp, no stranger to outlandish and outrageous make-up and costumes, has finally revealed his full look for Disney’s film adaption of Stephen Soundheim and James Lapin’s Tony award-winning Broadway musical, Into the Woods, on the cover of this week’s Entertainment Weekly.
Until now, fans have only been able to catch a fleeting glimpse of Depp as the Wolf in the film’s trailers, but now thanks to EW, you can catch a full look at the Academy Award nominated actor decked out in furs, bushy eyebrows, and a spindly mustache.
Into the Woods is a modern twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests.
This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family, and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them.
Into the Woods stars Meryl Streep as The Witch, James Corden and Emily Blunt as the Baker and Baker’s Wife, Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, Chris Pine as Cinderella’s Prince, Johnny Depp as The Wolf.
Also starring in the film are Lilla Crawford as Red Riding Hood, Daniel Huttlestone as Jack, Tracey Ullman as Jack’s Mother, Christine Baranski as Cinderella’s Stepmother, MacKenzie Mauzy as Rapunzel, Billy Magnussen as Rapunzel’s Prince, Tammy Blanchard as Florinda, Lucy Punch as Lucinda, Frances de la Tour as The Giant, Simon Russell Beale as The Baker’s Father, Joanna Riding as Cinderella’s Mother, and Annette Crosbie as Grandmother.
Into the Woods is directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago, Memoirs of a Geisha) and based on the Tony Award winning play by James Lapine and Stephen Soundheim.
Lapine wrote the screenplay for the film and Soundheim is credited with the music and lyrics, so musical/Broadway fans alike should have something exciting to look forward to this winter!
