Meryl Streep is a huge Witch in the Into the Woods movie

The legendary Meryl Streep is in talks to play the evil witch in the movie version of Steven Sondheim's legendary musical Into the Woods. The award-winning Broadway musical epitomized the phrase "fractured fairy tale," as Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Jack (of the Beanstalk fame) and a childless baker and his wife venture into the woods to have their wishes granted... and discover that real life seldom works like a fairy tale. The movie's been in development at Disney for a year or so, but we're guessing that if it all works out, The Mary Sue is right — Streep might as well clear a space on her mantle for another Oscar.
