The Oscar-winning actress joins James Franco and Mila Kunis in the project, to be directed by Sam Raimi.
Oscar-winning actress Rachel Weisz is in negotiations to play the villainess in Oz: The Great and Powerful, Disney’s prequel-ish take on The Wizard of Oz tale that stars James Franco and Mila Kunis and is being directed by Sam Raimi.
The movie stars Franco as Oz, a snake oil salesman who finds himself dealing with real magic when his balloon carries him into a fabled land and he runs into genuine witches.
Weisz would play Evanora, a powerful, evil witch who intends to rule the land. She is the sister of Theadora (Kunis) and tries to seduce her to the dark side.
The role would be a change of pace for Weisz, who — despite an eclectic resume ranging from her Oscar-winning work in The Constant Gardener to Wong Kar Wai’s My Blueberry Nights to The Mummy — has never worked on a project of this scale and never tackled what is sure to be a splashy role.

Who’d have guessed that she’d grow up to be the hottest former cast member of That ’70s Show? (Sorry, Ashton, but it’s true.) After kicking ass in The Book of Eli, Mila literally danced her way into our hearts as Black Swan’s badass ballerina. We went to see it five times. The Natalie-Mila sex scene was fine, but, man, are we suckers for a good plié.
Heat factor: Need another reason to hate Justin Timberlake? He got to see her naked while filming next month’s Friends With Benefits.
The top 10 also includes: 10. Jennifer Lawrence, 9. Cobie Smulders, 8. Natalie Portman, 7. Anne Hathaway, 6. Bar Rafaeli, 4. Cameron Diaz, 3. Katy Perry, 2. Olivia Munn and the winner Rosie Huntington Whiteley
Back in Boston. Mila was spotted took a break from shooting her new movie “Ted” on May 1st, 2011. Check out 43 on the set photos, also pictured with Joel McHale, Seth MacFarlane and Mark Wahlberg in our gallery.
In news that will either make President Obama beef up his security detail or eagerly trim it down, Mila Kunis told us Saturday night that she is determined to meet the president, and she’ll do whatever it takes.
“You tell Reggie, his right-hand man, to hook that shit up!” she instructed Vulture at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, asking, “Is Reggie here?” The recently single star was referring to Reggie Love, Obama’s strapping, 29-year-old body man, and though Kunis admitted that she has never met Love, she had a plan all worked out.
“I don’t know Reggie, but I would recognize him and I would definitely flirt with him if it helps me meet the president,” she said. Rest assured: Mila Kunis still has no trouble playing the black swan.
We’ve added some photos of 2011 White House Correspondents’ Dinner – Pre Parties in Washington Hilton Hotel. Also still adding more pics from arrivals & dinner. Check them out clicking by the thumbnails below.
Laura Vandervoort, who plays Supergirl on Smallville and who also stars on ABC’s V, has been added to the cast of Seth MacFarlane’s Ted, the Universal Pictures/Media Rights Capital comedy that stars Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, Joel McHale, Giovanni Ribisi and Patrick Warburton.
Vandervoort will play Tayna, a gorgeous salesgirl and coworker of John (Wahlberg) at the rental car service who is clueless to the gaggle of men who drool over her all day. She’s repped by Levine/Okwu/Erickson and Norbert Abrams.
