Rachel Weisz To Play Evil Witch In 'Oz: The Great and Powerful'

Rachel Weisz is in final discussions for a role as villainess in 'Oz: The Great and Powerful'.

The film is Sam Raimi's prequel loosely based on 'The Wizard of Oz'.

It has already cast James Franco and Mila Kunis (photosMila Kunis photos). Franco will play a fast-talking snake oil salesman who finds himself in a hot air balloon by a tornado to Oz to face off against real magic and witches.

And Kunis will play a good witch who feels jilted after her sexual advances are rejected by Franco.

Weisz is expected to play Kunis' sister, an evil witch who wants to rule the land and tries to seduce her to the dark side.

Rachel Weisz won an Oscar, and a number of other awards, for her role as Best Supporting Actress in 2005's 'The Constant Gardener'.
