The prequel to the beloved classic The Wizard of Oz, tells the story of Oz before his meeting with Dorothy and the events of that film.
James Franco is currently in talks to play Oz, and former Spiderman helmer Sam Raimi is directing. So who will fill out the cast?
Mila Kunis is also currently in talks with the production team. She is up for the part of Theodorah. Who’s that you ask? Well, Theodorah is the witch that goes on to become Dorothy’s adversary in the Wizard of Oz.
Yup, Kunis is in talks to become the Wicked Witch of the West!
How cool is that!?? And according to reports, the addition of Kunis will seal the deal with Franco as well!
Although the script for the film is being kept under wraps, it’s my opinion that they are likely using part of the story from Wicked. At least for the history of the witches.
I can’t wait to see how this one plays out. Filming on Oz, the Great and Powerful is set to begin this July with a 2013 release to be determined.
Do you think Kunis can pull off the Wicked Witch of the West? Sound off in the comments section below!
