While it was rumored that Johnny Depp was to play in the new take on Wizard of Oz, James Franco is playing the lead in Oz: The Great and Powerful! Recently, James and co-star, Mila Kunis, sat down to discuss what to expect, and NOT expect from this movie. First off, they tell everyone upfront, this is NOT a Judy Garland type movie. But be prepared to be amazed!
I was never a fan of the first Wizard of Oz movie. I mean, I do like it and enjoy it, but it’s just not that exciting to me. But what I am a fan of is when they take a classic movie, and give it a new, updated feel. In Oz: The Great and Powerful, they give kind of a back story to the original movie. But since I enjoy James Franco and Mila Kunis, I think this might be a great flick!
