Mila Kunis, who had been rumored to be in talks for Oz, The Great And Powerful, has officially signed on.
The last we heard, we heard from her herself about not knowing for sure if she could do it.
As it turns out, it looks like she can!
She'll be joining the ever-interesting James Franco, who is taking the lead role of a charming illusionist/con man who gets swept away to Oz, where he finds that magic is very real. Kunis is set to play the wicked witch Theodora, who isn't so wicked at first.
Sam Raimi is set to direct!
If they get this right, it could add so much more meaning to the first film, and the eventual death of the Wicked Witch. New motivations could be afoot!
So, are U happy she's been snagged for the role??
