Rob Marshall

As the movie musical continues to make its triumphant return, the genre has yet to truly find an instant classic to officially make it a viable and critically acclaimed genre, once again. Films like Hairspray and Nine are definitely fine/mediocre pieces, but not since Moulin Rouge! and Dreamgirls has a musical, on the big screen, been fraught with huge critical acclaim.

But that’s not without the continual pushing of one Rob Marshall.

THR is reporting that the filmmaker is set to head back to Disney (where he was last seen doing Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides), to adapt the Stephen Sondheim musical, Into The Woods.

Admittedly, Marshall was, earlier in his career, a choreographer on many Sondheim productions, so this seems like a perfect fit for the glitzy filmmaker. I wasn’t a huge fan of his last musical, Nine, but the man definitely has a great sense of production value and style, so while I’m not hugely familiar with this story (following several classic fairytale characters, including Cinderella, Rapunzel, and Little Red Riding Hood, with the story of a baker and his wife’s attempt to have a family), this is a film I’m really interested in checking out.

What do you think?
