Mila Kunis [Милена Кунис] reportedly cast as Theodora, the eventual Wicked Witch of the West, alongside James Franco in director Sam Raimi’s Oz the Great and Powerful, a prequel to the classic story, The Wizard of Oz.
Raimi has been adamant about casting two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank as Wicked Witch of the East in the film. However, Vulture is also informed that Disney is strongly opposed to such an idea. The studio has been pushing Raimi to offer the part to Michelle Williams, herself a two-time Oscar nominee, most recently for the Weinstein Co.’s ’s Blue Valentine

Wrongful Death Action on behalf of Blake

Adrienne Martin, 27, was found dead at the home of August Busch IV just before Christmas. Now Kevin Martin, her ex-husband has filed a wrongful death lawsuit for unspecified damages on behalf of their eight-year-old son, Blake. He claims his actions ‘contributed or caused Blake Alexander Martin [his son] to suffer loss of comfort and companionship’ through the death of his mother. The lawsuit does not explain what those actions were. But Blake’s grandmother, Christine Trampler, is worried about this lawsuit and is now taking legal action of her own. She has concerns that Blake’s best interests might not be represented. Trampler says she’ll be asking for a Guardian ad Litem to be appointed during this lawsuit and she’ll be seeking custody of Blake.
She questions Kevin’s fitness as Blake’s parent and that she wants the court to explore the close relationship between Kevin and Mr. Busch. Trampler has hired high-profile New York attorney John Q. Kelly, who represented Nicole Brown Simpson and the parents of Natalie Holloway.
