Film makers have been pretty tight lipped when it comes to how the characters are to look in Sam Rami’s up and coming Wizard of Oz reboot. However, one sharp eyed fan managed to snap a clip of James dressed as the dapper wizard when he spotted a pre-released poster last week. The poster doesn’t give a whole lot of information away, but does clearly show Franco’s unforgettable outfit.
Franco talked about his role as the wizard:
I get to play all these sides of Americano – the idea of American heroes – part of cowboy, part of weird magician, part con-man, part romantic man. I really got to play everything from classic cinema.
The movie which focuses around the wishful wizard played by Franco, follows him on his adventures as he runs into three withces, played by Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams. The film is set for a global release on the 8th March 2013.
