Fans might get to see Emily Blunt show off her vocal chops with Chris Pine and Jake Gyllenhaal in her next movie project. She is rumored in negotiations to join the cast ensemble of a Disney musical "Into the Woods" that mashes up classic fairytale, just a day after the two hunky actors were linked to the movie.

Blunt is attached to play the female lead in the upcoming flick directed by "Chicago" helmer Rob Marshall renowned for his prowess with musicals. Meanwhile, Pine and Gyllenhaal are linked to take on the love interests of the rags-to-riches princess Cinderella and another damsel in distress Rapunzel.

The movie follows a baker and his wife as they embark on a journey into the woods to find a witch who put a spell on them. Broadway actor James Corden is cast as the baker, Oscar winner Meryl Streep will portray the witch, while Johnny Depp is signed on for an unspecified role.

"The Good Wife" star Christine Baranski is also in talks to join the A-list cast ensemble.
