Oz in the News 1.20.11

Robert Downey Jr. Out of Sam Raimi’s ‘Oz The Great and Powerful,’ Johnny Depp Circling Robert Downey Jr. has not only stepped out from behind the curtain, he’s gotten into the house and flown back home to Kansas. The Iron Man star has dropped out of Sam Raimi‘s upcoming Oz The Great and Powerful leaving the project, which has just hired a unit production manager to start designing sets, without a title character. The film is about “a young illusionist with a grandiose attitude who is forced to flee a traveling circus. His hot air balloon is swept up by a tornado to the land of Oz, which is run by two magical wicked witches,” according to the Hollywood Reporter, and now Disney is hoping to fill the lead role with an even bigger star: Johnny Depp.
