Michelle Williams could be Glinda the good witch in Sam Raimi's Oz

05.17.2011

The role of another witch for Sam Raimi's OZ: THE GREAT AND POWERFUL may be cast soon.

Michelle Williams has been offered the part of Glinda, the good witch. The actress would be joining Mila Kunis and James Franco in Disney's sort of prequel to THE WIZARD OF OZ.

Here's what we have on the witches: "Kunis is on board as Theadora, a witch who falls for Franco. Rachel Weisz is in talk to play sister Evanora, the evil witch who wants to rule the land and tries to seduce Theadora to the dark side. If a deal makes for Williams, she would play a powerful witch who teams up with Franco to defeat Evanora (and maybe Theadora, but we’re not revealing spoilers)."

It is still unclear whether Weisz will be part of the film. Things have been made complicated by her commitment to the new BOURNE film starring Jeremy Renner. If she takes on both projects the shooting schedules would overlap.

OZ centers on, "Franco as 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."
