Walt Disney Pictures’ film adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim musical Into the Woods is gearing up to begin production in the U.K. Rehearsals for the film, which is being directed by Rob Marshall, began about 3 weeks ago at Shepperton Studios.
Now, according to recent casting calls, it looks like the movie will soon be filming on location in the coastal town of Dover, located in Kent, later this month. They are currently looking for people age 16 to 90 with “easy access to Dover or Canterbury”, men who are between 5 ft 6 in and 6 ft 2 in tall, and ladies of dress sizes ranging for six to 14 to appear in a scene in the movie that will take place in Dover on Wednesday, September 25 and Thursday, September 26. Though the casting call doesn’t specify exactly where in Dover they will be filming, we suspect they might shoot at Dover Castle.
The fairytale movie stars Meryl Streep as The Witch, James Corden as The Baker, Emily Blunt as The Baker’s Wife, Johnny Depp as The Wolf, Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, Chris Pine as Cinderella’s Prince, Billy Magnussen as Rapunzel’s Prince, Mackenzie Mauzy as Rapunzel, Lucy Punch as Lucinda, Tammy Blanchard as Florinda, Christine Baranski as Cinderella’s Stepmother, Tracey Ullman as Jack’s Mother, Sophia Grace Brownlee as Little Red Riding Hood and Daniel Huttlestone as Jack.
