Sweeney Todd

Into the Woods: Johnny Depp is in talks to reteam with his Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides director Rob Marshall for the big-screen adapation of Broadway musical Into the Woods -- and Meryl Streep may be his witchy nemesis. Depp, who last sang in Tim Burton’s Sweeney Todd, would play a baker who journeys through a land filled with fairy-tale creatures in order to confront a witch (that would be Streep) who has cast a deadly spell on his child.

The Secret Service: Colin Firth will play an elegant superspy who trains his rough-hewn nephew how to be a secret agent in The Secret Service, to be directed by Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class). Based on the comic book series by Mark Millar (Kick-Ass) and Dave Gibbons (Watchmen), the movie is scheduled to start production in August. Still to be cast is the all-important role of the nephew, an unemployed “hooligan.” [Latino Review]

RED 2 Trailer: Speaking of spies, RED 2 is a sequel to the successful original, following the exploits of a team of retired secret agents who are pulled back into active duty. The first full trailer has now been released, showcasing new additions Catherine Zeta-Jones and a playful Anthony Hopkins, as well as returning veterans Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker and Helen Mirren. Look for the movie on August 2. [Yahoo! Movies]

Fast & Furious 6 Trailer: Promising more action than ever before, the final trailer for Fast & Furious 6 before it roars into theaters on May 24 has been unleashed. Somehow it packs in even more acrobatic fighting and flying through midair in its brief running time. Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson star. [Empire]
