In October 1994, a reading of a script (written by Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel) was held at the home of director Penny Marshall. The cast included Robin Williams (the Baker), Goldie Hawn (the Baker's Wife), Cher (the Witch), Steve Martin (the Wolf), Danny DeVito (the Giant), Elijah Wood (Jack), Roseanne (Jack's mother), Bebe Neuwirth (Cinderella's stepmother), Mayim Bialik (Little Red Riding Hood), Samantha Mathis (Rapunzel), Brendan Fraser (Rapunzel's prince), Moira Kelly (Cinderella), Kyle MacLachlan (Cinderella's prince) and Michael Jeter (Cinderella's father).
I LOL'd reading this...
The cast is so random it almost seems like a joke.

Wow, that cast is surprising, alarming, and intriguing at the same time.
Ellijah Wood would have been a precious Jack. (can he sing?)
