- OZ: THE GREAT AND THE POWERFUL
Oz the Great and Powerful, will be soon be start filming on The Wizard of Oz, sequel with the film looking to make its motion picture debut on March 8, 2013.
The film will be helmed by Sam Raimi, the director of such films as the Spider-Man trilogy and the Evil Dead films, and features a robust cast composed of Academy Award nominees James Franco (127 Hours) and Michelle Williams (Brokeback Mountain), as well as Academy Award-winner Rachel Weisz (The Constant Gardener), Golden Globe-nominees Mila Kunis (Black Swan) and Zach Braff (Scrubs), and many others.
The film takes a tender look at how the great Wizard of Oz came to be, with shambling Kansas magician Oscar Diggs (Franco) cast out from his friendly confines to the depths of an unimaginable world, the Land of Oz. With a legendary sorcerer supposedly coming to save Oz, the man attempts to pawn off his dusty old magic tricks as a saving grace, fooling all but three residents: the three witches (Kunis, Weisz, and Williams).
