Mila Kunis at 2012 CinemaCon, promoting her new film “Oz: The Great and Powerful.” In the film, a new spin on the classic “The Wizard of Oz,” Mila plays one of three super sexy witches. (Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz play the others.)
James Franco stars as the Wizard in the new film set to hit theaters in 2013. “Oz: The Great and Powerful” doesn’t tell the traditional tale of “Oz.” Instead, it centers around the Wizard’s path in the magical land, following him from a young age as he encounters various characters.
“He is a comedic character,” Franco said of the Wizard. “There are a lot of sides to Oz, but one of the main aspects of Oz is his comedy and his sense of humor. I think that allows a movie to get away with a lot.”
