Did Meryl confirm herself for "Into the Woods"?

I've been uncertain if I should post on this over the last few days.  However, I think it's pretty clear that these articles are legitimate as are its contents.  Evidently The Iron Lady is finally being released in Beijing, and Meryl gave several phone interviews discussing, among other things, her upcoming projects.  Here's a link to what I think is the best and most descriptive article.  I know it's a little weird and hopefully it automatically translates from Chinese into English on your browser as it did mine.  Because it's translated by a computer, some of the syntax is irregular which makes it mildly difficult to comprehend at times, but we get the important parts.

The section of interest for me is of course what her upcoming film schedule is.   She reports that she has finished up August: Osage County, begins shooting The Homesman in May, and (most exciting) will be starting Into the Woods in October.  Whoomp there it is!  If her work as The Witch truly begins shooting this fall, I think we can assume a late 2014 release which guessed it.  Into the Woods, not surprisingly, will likely look to be an Oscar contender, as was the intent with Rob Marshall's other two recent musicals, Chicago and Nine.   I wish we had American journalists who could get Meryl to divulge so much juicy information in one interview!
