on the yellow brick road to Oz

This fall, I'll join the cast of Sam Raimi's upcoming "Oz: The Great and Powerful." Walt Disney Productions is producing this 3D prequel to "The Wizard of Oz," and shooting begins this July. According to IMDb, the film tells how the Wizard (James Franco) arrived in Oz and how he became its leader. Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz and Mila Kunis also star.

David Lindsay-Abaire ("Rabbit Hole" --I adore both play and movie) is the most recently credited writer on the screenplay.

Raimi is one of my favorite filmmakers ("A Simple Plan" is goosebumpy jumpy excellence), and I can't wait to go to work on this movie somewhere in Michigan this September and October ;-)
