Anna Kendrick and Meryl Streep May Star in the Into the Woods Movie

So, Rob Marshall (the guy who gave us the Chicago movie and the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean) is adapting the creepfest Broadway musical Into the Woods for the screen. Excited? Scared? Completely unmoved? Odds are, this movie will be a pretty big deal, if for no other reason than that every actor ever is in talks to appear in it.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the project has attracted a growing list of stars that includes Anna Kendrick, Meryl Streep, Chris Pine, Jake Gyllenhaal, James Corden, Emily Blunt, Tracy Ullman, and Christine Baranski. All of them are reportedly in negotiations to be part of the production, but rumor has it that Kendrick will take on the role of Cinderella, who, in this story, is married to a vainglorious prince (Pine).

That's great and everything (Anna Kendrick is completely delightful), but the real question is: how easily is Meryl Streep going to win an Oscar for this? Like, fairly easily, or breaking-a-mild-sweat easy?
