Casting Coup!

It was reported yesterday by Broadwayworld that Meryl Streep will play the witch in a film adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods!  The film will be directed by Rob Marshall.  Read more about it here.
Meanwhile, The Hollywood Reporter finally confirmed that the new film adaptation of August Strindberg's Miss Julie directed by Liv Ullmann will star Jessica Chastain!  Colin Farrell and Samantha Morton will also be part of the cast.  Ms. Chastain has mentioned that Miss Julie is one of her dream roles and has hinted about this project about a week and a half ago in this SAG Foundation Q & A (around 55:20 min).
For theatre nerds like us, this is all kinds of goodness! I cannot wait!
