Rachel Weisz Shares New Info On Sam Raimi's OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL

Actress Rachel Weisz, who is playing 'Evanora' in the Sam Raimi-directed fantasy film Oz The Great and Powerful, shares some new details about this chapter and more. Check it out...

We haven't heard much about the Sam Raimi-directed film Oz The Great and Powerful, which is sort of a prequel to the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz. Filming began back in July of 2011, and it's probably now in post-production. Film is set to hit theatres next March, so I'm guessing we will get at least a teaser during this summer. For now, Rachel Weisz, who has been cast as a character called Evanora, talked to MTV about how this film is a completely different story. She also talks a little bit about her role in Tony Gilroy's The Bourne Legacy. Check out the video below:



Oz The Great and Powerful is set for March 8th, 2013 release, and stars James Franco, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, Rachel Weisz and Zach Braff.
“Oz The Great and Powerful” imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot—fame and fortune are his for the taking—that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.
