I'm huge fan, a while back there was an "Into the Woods" film in the works, does he know if this will happen?

Mr. Sondheim and Anthony Perkins wrote the script for a great movie, "The Last of Sheila". Is it true that they subsequently prepared a script for another movie? If so, is there any chance that it will be filmed?
