Theatre fans, of course, will be familiar with the story - originally a Tony-winning musical by James Lapine, who also penned the screenplay, and legendary composer Stephen Sondheim, who provides the music and lyrics (including a new song created especially for the film).

Plus, it's directed by Rob Marshall, the man who took Chicago from stage to big-screen so spectacularly.

A surefire hit.

Currently in post-production, Into The Woods will be released in the UK on 9 January 2015.
