Writer Hired for an ‘Oz the Great and Powerful’ Sequel
Sam Raimi’s Oz the Great and Powerful might only have just landed in cinemas, but a sequel is already in the works with a writer, Mitchell Kapner, hired to pen the follow-up script.
The film has been a huge success, among the top grossing releases in March ever, so it’s no surprise that Disney want to cash in on their new potential franchise. The film will presumably continue the adventures of the Wizard, played by James Franco, and the three witches of Oz.
Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams are very likely (if not contractually obliged) to return, along with producer Joe Roth, but it’s unlikely that director Sam Raimi will be taking another trip back to Oz.
