Sexy story details emerge for Raimi and RDJ's Oz the Great and Powerful
Story details emerge for Raimi and RDJ's Oz the Great and Powerful I'm kind of sad that WORLD OF WARCRAFT won't be Sam Raimi's next feature, but now with this plot description for OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL, it's starting to look like a pretty worthwhile film.
Robert Downey Jr. is playing the titular Oz, and the film appears to be a straight-up prequel leading into the events of the classic OZ film.
From an inside source at Pajiba, here's the lowdown:
Thanks to the Hollywood Cog, we now know quite a few details about Mitchell Kapner's story, which would have the Wizard — a snake-oil salesman posing as a magician — enter Oz via a hot-air balloon, which he uses to escape an angry husband who has found out that Oz slept with his wife. There, Oz — a fast-talking huckster who wears a velveteen frock coat (yes, I can see that) — falls in love with Glinda (the Good Witch), and the two combine forces to Fight the Evil Witches Evanora and Theodora. Theodora starts out as a good witch, but after Oz jilts her sexual advances, Evanora — the truly evil witch — convinces Theodora to become an evil witch with her and help her to rule all of Oz. Both Evanora and Theodora are described as incredibly attractive, seductive women, and Theodora likes to wear black, thigh-high boots.
Three hot witches and RDJ in full mack mode? Sounds good to me. I'm also very interested to see what Oz looks like rendered in 2011 CGI. It almost might be worth a viewing in 3D. Did I just say that?
