Thought Catalog: The 20 best movies that Hollywood hasn’t made yet

Thought Catalog: The 20 best movies that Hollywood hasn’t made yet

At Thought Catalog, on movies I would pay good money to see:

News broke this week that Meryl Streep, queen of Hollywood and of my heart, has been cast as the witch in the film production of Into the Woods. Into the Woods, the Stephen Sondheim musical that weaves together several fairytales and asks, in its second act, the great unanswered question – what happens after “happily ever after”? — is pretty much my favorite musical of all time. And it’s got some stiff competition, too, your Kiss Me, Kates, and your Singin’ in the Rains, and your Last Five Yearses. Into the Woods is excellent source material for a movie. The witch, whose main role is not to cast spells but to make us question our ideas about good, evil, powerful women, age, and beauty, is an excellent part. And Meryl Streep is the definition of excellent. I’m excited. But to be honest, I’d watch Meryl Streep in almost anything (I mean, I’ve seen Mamma Mia more than once, and that movie is objectively terrible). I’d pay good money to watch Meryl Streep do totally mundane things. And not just Meryl Streep, now that I think of it…
