Apparently Sam Raimi says there will be. Comingsoon posted that Raimi, using On Location Vacation, is looking for clowns in the Michigan area for Disney’s Oz, The Great and Powerful. The movie stars James Franco, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, Zach Braff and Rachel Weisz.
I am not 100% sure what role the clowns will fill, but if I had any clown talent I would totally show up. So, if you are living in or going to be in Michigan anytime soon, and are an actual clown then read this ad and go for it. If not, then let us know what you think that the clowns will be used for.
Casting Associates is looking for Clowns to work as extras on the feature film “Oz: The Great and Powerful”. This is a prequel to The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900) by L. Frank Baum, told from the point of view of the Wizard. It tells how the Wizard arrived in Oz and how he became the ruler.
