Attention, Rachel Weisz – Oz is a-callin’.
The Oscar winner is being courted to join the upcoming Sam Raimi-directed Wizard of Oz prequel, the James Franco-fronted Oz, the Great and Powerful, as one of its evil witches.
The actress would join Mila Kunis (who is set to play the Wicked Witch of the West) in the sisterly act and war with the wizard, who once upon a time wasn’t quite all that and a bag of potato chips but a snake-oil huckster whisked away to the magical land. Weisz would play the bad-influence Wicked Witch of the East.
The movie is expected to land in theaters in 2013.
