Britain's Got Talent: Asanda Jezile



Jezile is said to have auditioned for the part in London on Friday (June 14) and has since received a recall.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides director Rob Marshall apparently sent an invite to Jezile after seeing her performance on the ITV talent show.

A source said: "Asanda has definite star quality and Rob spotted that straight away. He thinks she might be exactly what they are looking for.

"If she manages to get the part it will be a huge break for her."

Into the Woods is a Tony Award-wining stage musical that includes several iconic storybook characters such as Jack and the Beanstalk and Cinderella.

Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, James Corden, Emily Blunt, Jake Gyllenhaal and Chris Pine have been linked with leading roles in the adaptation, which is expected to be released in 2014.
