Robert Downey Jr. Rumored for Oz the Great and Powerful With Sam Mendes

Robert Downey Jr. May Be Headed to Oz

Want to see Robert Downey Jr. as an eccentric magician who travels by air balloon? Yeah, me too! Downey is reportedly the first choice to play Oz (as in, the Wizard of Oz) for a new project titled Oz The Great And Powerful. Sam Mendes is rumored to direct. The story follows Oscar Zoroaster Phadrig Isaac Norman Henkel Emmannuel Ambroise Diggs (Oz, for short) when he mistakenly floats from Omaha into the mystical land he would later rule. No word on if Dorothy or the munchkins will cameo.

I'm probably guaranteed to love any movie Robert Downey Jr. is in, so I think it sounds awesome! And I have no doubt that he'll make one badass Oz.
