LONDON Jan 7 (Reuters) - Hit movie versions of Broadway musicals are rare but the creators of the Disney film of Stephen Sondheim's revered "Into the Woods" are hoping its smash opening in the United States will be replicated abroad.

The film starring Meryl Streep as the Witch, Emily Blunt as the Baker's Wife and Johnny Depp as a louche Wolf is approaching the $100 million box-office mark since its Christmas Day opening, its producers said on the eve of its British premiere.
