Meryl Streep
Los Angeles - She’s not nice, she’s just right, she’s the witch. Check out the first photo of Meryl Streep as The Witch in the upcoming film version of the Stephen Sondheim/James Lapine musical Into the Woods, Entertainment Weekly reported.

Rob Marshall (Chicago) is directing the film, which started production this week in the UK.

Meryl’s character wishes to reverse a curse so that her beauty may be restored.

The humorous and heartfelt musical, a modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, explores the consequences of the quests 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, and the witch who cast a spell on them.



In the photo above, Streep takes on a terrifying yet high-style version of the character – which was originated by Bernadette Peters on Broadway in 1987 — complete with yellowing talon-like nails and a feathery frock.
