Ding dong, Mila Kunis is dead?

Sources tell NY Magazine's Vulture blog that the "Black Swan" star is set to join the hot prequel to "The Wizard of Oz," but she won't be clicking her heels or granting wishes. Instead, if true, she'll take on the role of Theodora -- the woman who becomes the Wicked Witch of the East. If you remember, that's the witch that Dorothy flattens with a house when she lands in Oz.

She'd join James Franco, who is already slated to star in the film as the titular Wizard -- in fact, Vulture says that Kunis's commitment sealed up Franco for the role.

Reporting on the film earlier, Cinemablend says that the film would show the Wizard as a conman who falls in love with Glinda, the Good Witch, leading the two to plot against her evil two sisters.

The film is being produced by Disney and is slated to begin filming this summer.
