James Franco: Starring in 'Oz'!

James Franco is in early talks to star as the title character in Oz: The Great and Powerful, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Johnny Depp and Robert Downey Jr. were previously in discussions for the role.

“Sources caution that no dealmaking has begun and many issues would need to be ironed out, but if the stars align, [James] would be back working with [director Sam Raimi] for the first time since they collaborated on Sony’s Spider-Man movies,” added THR.
