James Franco Headed To Oz?

james franco in early talks for oz movie

We absolutely love James Franco, but let's be honest…he's been in the land of Oz for a while now, so he might as well get paid for it. LOLz.

Franco, who's got about 7000000 projects in a variety of formats already in the works, is in early talks to take on the lead role in Sam Raimi/Disney's Oz, The Great and Powerful.

Previous actors who were up for the role include Robert Downey Jr. and Johnny Depp, who officially passed on the project last week.

If cast in the role, Franco would play "a young illusionist with a grandiose attitude who is forced to flee a traveling circus. His hot air balloon is swept up by a tornado to the land of Oz, which is run by two magical wicked witches."

Sam Raimi previously worked with James Franco on the pre-Andrew Garfield Spider-Man trilogy. We know a lot of some people hated on Spider-Man 3, but we liked Franco's body as Harry Osborn.

Would U like to see James Franco venture into the world of Oz?

Mary Jane Watson DROPPED From Spider-Man Reboot?!

Filed under: Film Flickers

We feel like every day, we're hearing something different!

There's been quite a bit of speculation surrounding the reboot of Spider-Man, specifically regarding whether or not Mary Jane Watson or Gwen Stacy will be the primary love interest for the web slinger in the new flick.

The biggest surprise came with the casting of Emma Stone, whom everyone assumed would take on KiKi's role before it was revealed that she would be Gwen!

However, sources are reporting now that the Mary Jane character has been completely dropped from the reboot - mainly because the writer, James Vanderbilt, and director Marc Webb couldn't figure out a way to successfully incorporate a love-triangle into the script, and eventually became weary of the idea after how poorly a similar plot line was received in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3!

The same source is also confirming The Lizard as the reboot's main villain!

Inneresting!

And we'd say that eliminating Mary Jane is probably a smart move! They've already covered all of that ground in the first films, so we think the more original this one is, the better!

What do U think?? Are U happy with the direction the new Spider-Man is taking??
