Oz in the News 9.5.11

Mila Kunis talks style, scripts and working with Justin Timberlake!  “It’s been crazy. I finished Ted, which is a Seth MacFarlane and Mark Wahlberg movie, the next day I flew to Detroit and started pre-production for Oz. Now I’m a little confused as to what country I’m in but I’ve started, stopped and am about to start shooting Oz again!  I met with Sam Raimi [the director] before James (Franco) was attached. I mean, it’s Sam Raimi, and it’s the prequel to The Wizard of Oz! It’s an amazing role, an incredible film and I’ve never done a PG13 film that I can show my kids one day.”

Book Review: Gathering the Seeds of American Writers  Once in a decade a book as good as Seeds: One Man’s Serendipitous Journey to Find the Trees That Inspired Famous American Writers from Faulkner to Kerouac, Welty to Wharton by Richard Horan appears, to astonish and delight us. From the wooded road made of golden hemlock running past L. Frank Baum’s childhood home to the lonely stump of Scout’s oak in Harper Lee’s Alabama, author Richard Horan gathers tree seeds—and stories—from the homes of America’s most treasured authors.
