Rachel Weisz May Join Kunis As "Oz" Witch
Early last month, we reported that Mila Kunis had signed on to play a witch in the upcoming Disney film "Oz: The Great and Powerful." Now, Rachel Weisz is reportedly in talks to join the cast along side Kunis.
"Oz" is a prequel to the 1930's film "The Wizard of Oz" and takes place before the events of L. Frank Baum's classic story. James Franco, who is slated to fill the Wizard's shoes, will help chronicle that character's beginnings as a snake-oil salesman.
As for Weisz, there is no current deal or signing. We'll keep you posted for any future "Oz"-related news that develops.
Look for "Oz: The Great and Powerful" to hit theaters sometime in 2013.
