Disney's Into the Woods gets starrier by the day. After signing and/or getting close to signing Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Jake Gyllenhaal, Chris Pine, and Emily Blunt, the Stephen Sondheim adaptation is courting Anna Kendrick as its Cinderella. Pine Gyllenhaal would be her prince. Kendrick sang in last year's Pitch Perfect (and did that awesome "Cups" video), but she's been doing the musical thing for a while — she was nominated for a Tony award for her role in High Society at age 12.
