James Franco Signs On For 'Oz: The Great And Powerful.'

Sam Raimi’s Wizard of Oz prequel, Oz: The Great And Powerful, is finally underway and James Franco is close to signing a deal with Disney to take on the title role.

The script, written by Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire, will focus on the iconic character’s past as a circus wrangler who is transported to the fairy tale land by a tornado, where he’s mistaken for a powerful wizard!

I think Franco is an excellent choice to play the Wizard of Oz. I am so excited to see this new story play out.

Do you think Franco was the right choice? Who would you have liked to see play the title role?
