According to TheWrap actor Jake Gyllenhaal, who was in negotiations to play Cinderella’s Prince in the upcoming movie adaptation of the musical Into the Woods, has left the project so he could commit completely to the independent film Nightcrawler. Although the actor intended to take part in both movies scheduling conflicts are preventing him from doing so.
The role of Cinderella’s Prince was inaugurated in the original Broadway production by Robert Westenberg, and since then it has been played by Chuck Wagner and Gregg Edelman, amongst others.
A curious fact? The actor who plays Cinderella’s Prince has also been known for playing The Wolf, a role which will be portrayed in the movie by actor Johnny Depp.
