Emily Blunt confirms "Into the Woods"

I'm a little tardy with this news, but among other sources, is reporting that Emily Blunt has confirmed that she will be working alongside Meryl for a second time, starring in Into the Woods.  She doesn't specifically say she's playing The Baker's Wife, but all previous reports suggest so.

This article states that filming is set to begin early 2014, however all other sources I've read corroborate previous reports that a fall 2013 start date is more likely.  Regardless, I just want this film out no later than fourth quarter 2014.  Considering the number of convoluted elements and likely special effects that are going to be involved, they had best get underway sooner than later.  Here's where we are with the casting:

The Witch: Meryl Streep (confirmed)
The Wolf: Johnny Depp (confirmed)
The Baker: James Corden (confirmed)
Cinderella's/Rapunzel's Prince: Jake Gyllenhaal & Chris Pine (rumored)
The Baker's Wife:  Emily Blunt (confirmed)
The Stepmother: Christine Baranski (rumored)
Stepsister: Megan Hilty (rumored)
