James Franco Heading to Sam Raimi’s Oz, The Great And Powerful?

Flying a hot air balloon is the next ride of James Franco.

Actor James Franco is now eying the the role for Disney's Oz: The Great and Powerful and reportedly he is now in early talks to take the Wizard Of Oz prequel which will be directed by Sam Raimi.

Robert Downey Jr was once attached to the title role and he was replaced by Johnny Depp, who decided to dropped out.

According to Heat Vision Blog, "Sources caution that no dealmaking has begun and many issues would need to be ironed out, but if the stars align, Franco would be back working with Raimi for the first time since they collaborated on Sony’s Spider-Man movies. At this stage, Franco hasn't met with Raimi to discuss the project."

Meanwhile, Oscar co-host Franco is nominated for an Academy award in the Best Actor category.
