Zach Braff Joining Sam Raimi’s “Oz”

Zach Braff is in final talks to join Sam Raimi’s “Oz: The Great and Powerful” for Disney Pictures reports Deadline.

Braff will play the role of Frank, the loyal but under-appreciated assistant to Oz (James Franco), a charismatic circus magician who is treated as a powerful wizard after his balloon blows off course into Oz.

Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire wrote the script while shooting kicks off in July in Michigan.
