Mila Kunis is in talks to star as the infamous Wicked Witch in the Wizard of Oz prequel Oz, The Great and Powerful.

Directed by Sam Raimi, the film delves into the backstory of the Wizard and Oz’s three witches: Glinda the Good Witch, Evanorah, the Wicked Witch of the East and her sister Theodorah, the Wicked Witch of the West (who goes on to terrorize Dorothy in the 1939 film).

The Black Swan star is rumoured to be up for the part of Theodorah, while James Franco will play the Wizard, a conman who is in love with Glinda and plots with her to take down the two wicked sisters.
