Billy Magnussen is in final talks to replace Jake Gyllenhaal in INTO THE WOODS, opposite Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, James Corden, Emily Blunt and Chris Pine. The story will intertwine fairy-tale characters including Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood with the story of a baker and his wife’s attempt to have a family. Magnussen will play Rapunzel’s prince.
James Lapine wrote the script that Rob Marshall will direct and produce with John DeLuca and Marc Platt.
Mangnussen was last seen in “The East” as (*holds back laughter*) Porty McCabe and will next appear in “Revenge of the Green Dragons.”
He is repped by Bauman, Redanty & Shaul.
