Disney MAY Have Found Their New Wicked Witch Of The East!

rachel weisz may be new wicked witch of the east

Last month, we were pleased to hear that both Hilary Swank and Michelle Williams were up for the role of the Wicked Witch of the East in Disney/Sam Raimi's upcoming film Oz: The Great and Powerful.

Both actresses seemed like great choices, but now we've learned that Rachel Weisz is currently in negotiations to play the role in the sort-of-prequel to The Wizard of Oz, which also stars James Franco as Oz, and Mila Kunis as the Wicked With of the West.

We could get behind Rachel for this role. She could DEF pull it off!

Such a great cast! We're getting increasingly excited for this one.

What do U think of Rachel Weisz as the Wicked Witch of the East? Is she right for the part?

Will Charlie's Goddesses Be Next To Go? Rachel Oberlin's Mom Is Worried

Filed under: Icky Icky PooCharlie Sheen

could charlies goddesses go next

Last night, Charlie Sheen's children were taken away from him, based on a court order from his ex Brooke Mueller.

Now, it looks Charlie's Goddess Rachel Oberlin aka Bree Olson COULD be next to go, if her mother Marie Oberlin has anything to do with it.

Here's Rachel's mother on her concerns for her daughter:

"I was doing laundry this morning and I had the TV on in the background. I was walking by with a load of laundry and I heard [Sheen] say something about goddesses. And I thought, 'Oh brother, what is he talking about?' I didn't know he was talking about my daughter. I thought he was talking about his ex wife or something."

"I tried calling Rachel right after that. I wanted to talk to her. But there was no answer. I wonder what he promised her … I just don't want to see her hurt."

"I just wish I could get in touch with someone who could give me some insight into all this. I just want to know what he is thinking. Rachel calls me about once a week and says, 'Hi, mom. It's me. Everything is okay.' But I can't get much more out of her than that."

More from Goddess Rachel's mother:

"What would I tell her? She needs to think about her future. I'd tell her that just like [in] The Wizard of Oz, there's no place like home. She was a straight-A student in school. But she's an adult now. I don't know what advice I can give an adult."

"I pray every day to God that she will wake up and say, 'This is not for me. This is not how I want my life to be.' "

We sympathize with Rachel's mother. Charlie's house is definitely not the right environment for anybody her, and we hope that the Goddesses both leave him.

He needs to be at a facility, NOT living with two beautiful women, who are further perpetuating his delusion that his life isn't a mess.

Thoughts???

James Franco Signs On To Oz: The Great And Powerful!

Filed under: Film FlickersJames Franco

Excellent!

Although Robert Downey Jr. was originally in talks to appear in Sami Raimi's prequel to The Wizard of Oz, Oz: The Great and Powerful, it appears now that James Franco is on the verge of closing a deal with Disney to take on the title role in the flick!

The script, written by Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire, will focus on the iconic character's past as a circus wrangler who is transported to the fairy tale land by a tornado, where he's mistaken for a powerful wizard!

Inneresting! We're definitely curious to see how this comes out! Especially now that his seksi ass is involved!

Hopefully they won't disappoint!

What do U think?? Will U see Oz: The Great and Powerful??

Robert Downey Jr. Won't Travel To Oz

Filed under: DisneyJohnny DeppRobert Downey Jr.

But Johnny Depp just might.

It's been confirmed that Robert Downey Jr. has pulled out from taking the lead role in Disney's Wizard of Oz prequel project, Oz, the Great and Powerful. Now, the studio is in negotiations to get Johnny to step into the role - but it may cost them.

We're hearing this Oz project is a top priority for the Disney folks and they've been hoping to start production on the flick by the second half of the year. The script is all finished and director Sam Raimi is ready to lead on, but the decision to offer Johnny the part is a tricky one.

The timing is a little regrettable, especially for those who have been waiting for him to finally make The Lone Ranger flick. Right now, Johnny is scheduled to begin shooting Dark Shadows for Warner Bros. this spring. He's also attached to star as Tonto in The Lone Ranger, which has no start date just yet. If he commits to starring in Oz after shooting Dark Shadows, that means Ranger gets pushed back. That puts the rest of the talent in jeopardy.

We think it's time to dig deep for some Disney magic and find a way to make it all work out. Maybe someone can even manage to give Johnny a break somewhere in there too!

Nightmare Before Christmas Animator Takes On The Land Of Oz!

nightmare before christmas animator takes on oz

There are WAY too many Wizard of Oz-inspired movies coming out…and now there's one more.

We must say, though, we're intrigued by this one, which is titled Oz Wars, and is being helmed by The Nightmare Before Christmas animator Mike Johnson.

Here's what Johnson had to say about Oz Wars:

"[It's an] animated action-adventure story, but unlike most animated films, it's not just for kids. The Land of Oz will be reimagined using stop-motion to create a world that's dark, slick, sexy and dangerous."

A dark, sexy Oz, eh? Could be inneresting.

We suddenly see visions of pre-teenagers shedding off their Jack Skellington hoodies and flocking to Hot Topic to pick up new hoodies with anorexic, pale, black-haired Dorothy on them.

Will U go see The Nightmare Before Oz Oz Wars?
