Bruce Campbell May Appear in Sam Raimi’s Oz: The Great And Powerful After All

22 December 2011 12:00 PM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Shortly after filming on director Sam Raimi‘s forthcoming Walt Disney Pictures movie Oz: The Great and Powerful began, we brought you the news when actor Bruce Campbell stated on Twitter that he would be joining the likes of James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, Joey King and Zach Braff on the cast.

Just a couple of months after that, much to the dismay of his fans (myself included) Campbell stated on Twitter,

“News: my scene in Oz has been cut before shooting. It happens on epic flicks. Disappointed, but all good w/Sam. On to the next adventure!”

According to TheShiznit, who recently spoke with Campbell about the scene he did end up shooting, so it seems he may be appearing in the film after all.

Bruce Campbell Confirmed in ‘Oz: The Great and Powerful’

22 December 2011 1:55 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Director Sam Raimi and actor Bruce Campbell knew each other since the beginnings of their film careers. So were there any doubts that Raimi would not include his friend Campbell in “Oz: The Great and Powerful?” Back in November, Campbell admitted his cameo scene was cut. In Campbell’s Twitter account, he wrote, “News: my scene in Oz has been cut before shooting. It happens on epic flicks. Disappointed, but all good w/Sam. On to the next adventure! Now Cambell told The Shiznit that his scene is restored and it plays an important part of the upcoming Wizard of Oz prequel. “The scene that I shot was a page [of the script] and it took all day. It was great to see the scope of Oz and to see the detail, and the craftsmanship and professionalism and the incredible stuff that they’re doing visually in every other way,” he said. “I play a pivotal role. »

Good news landed today for the Bruce Campbell Army — of fans, not the Dead — when the showbiz site Shiznit reported on Campbell’s return to longtime friend and collaborator Sam Raimi’s upcoming fantasy Oz: The Great And Powerful. Campbell was originally set for a supporting role in the film as early as last August until re-writes and production schedules booted his character from the script. But Raimi made adjustments and Campbell returned to work for his original Evil Dead director. “The scene that I shot was a page of the script and it took all day,” Campbell said. “It was great to see the scope of Oz and to see the detail, and the craftsmanship and the professionalism and the incredible stuff that they’re doing visually in every other way.” »

Bruce Campbell Is Back in Oz: The Great and Powerful

21 December 2011 9:36 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in August, we reported that actor Bruce Campbell joined the cast of Sam Raimi's Oz: The Great and Powerful in a small but "pivotal" role. However, the actor revealed last month that his scene was cut before it was shot. The latest twist is that, somehow, the actor actually did shoot this scene. Here's what he had to say about his role in Oz: The Great and Powerful.

"The scene that I shot was a page [of the script] and it took all day. It was great to see the scope of Oz and to see the detail, and the craftsmanship and the professionalism and the incredible stuff that they're doing visually in every other way. I play a pivotal role. It involves me and Oz - that's James Franco - and let's just say that we have a confrontation. It was a very fun role to do actually."

Bruce Campbell Will Be in Sam Raimi’s ‘Oz: The Great and Powerful’ After All, and He’s Already Shot His Cameo

20 December 2011 1:30 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] Bruce Campbell doesn't appear in all of Sam Raimi's films, but in the years since their work on the Evil Dead movies, the actor's become a familiar -- if small -- presence in many of them. So we were a bit disappointed last month [2] to hear that Campbell wouldn't be making a cameo in Raimi's next picture, Oz: The Great and Powerful, despite earlier reports [3] that he'd been slated to appear. But now it seems Campbell's back in after all, and what's more, that he's already shot his "pivotal" (not really) part. More details after the jump. Back in November, Campbell tweeted [4], "My scene in Oz has been cut before the shooting. It happens on epic flicks. Disappointed, but all good w/Sam. On to the next adventure!" However, he's now changed his tune, telling The Shiznit [5] in a recent interview that he's already filmed the scene: The scene »

Michelle Williams' Magical Time WIth Daughter Matilda

19 November 2011 9:16 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Though Michelle Williams got her start on a show geared towards teenagers, she's built her already-illustrious career with serious roles that largely been far from family friendly.

To score her first Oscar nomination, Williams co-starred in the gritty, high-profile closeted gay cowboy feature, "Brokeback Mountain." Then, a string of dramas, such as "The Hottest State," "Incendiary," "Deception," "Wendy and Lucy," and "Synecdoche, New York," all of which earned R ratings from the MPAA. The acclaimed work led to two of the biggest roles of her life, in "Blue Valentine" and "My Week With Marilyn," but also, a bit of a parental dilemma: with daughter Matilda walking, talking and out of the nursery, it was a bit difficult for Williams to bring her to work.

So, as the two time Oscar nominee told the Los Angeles Times earlier this week, getting cast as Glinda the Good Witch in "Oz: The Great and Powerful, »

Bruce Campbell Says He's Not Going To Be In Oz: The Great And Powerful

11 November 2011 5:35 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi have been attached at the hip. Though Campbell hasn't actually starred in any of Raimi's movies since 1992's Army of Darkness, the director has always given his acting pal an awesome cameo, be it his appearance at the end of Darkman or his three different roles in the Spider-Man trilogy. Back in August Campbell said that this pattern would continue with Raimi's Oz: The Great and Powerful, tweeting, "I. Am. In. Oz. Sam Raimi refuses to tell me what character I will portray. Just know that the role is Pivotal. " Sadly, however, it must not have been as pivotal as he thought because apparently he's been cut from the film. Once again using Twitter to reach out to his fans, Campbell is now saying that he will not be in Oz: The Great And Powerful, and, what's even worse, his scene will not be available »

Bruce Campbell Won’t Cameo in Sam Raimi’s ‘Oz: The Great and Powerful’

11 November 2011 11:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Sam Raimi doesn't have Bruce Campbell to kick around anymore. Not in Oz: The Great and Powerful, at least. Raimi made an early career out of kicking Campbell's ass on a regular basis through the Evil Dead films, and the actor has cameoed in many of Raimi's features that followed. He was set for a cameo in Oz: The Great and Powerful, which stars James Franco as the man who becomes the Wizard of Oz, and Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams as three sister witches with whom he becomes entangled when he finds himself in their land of Oz. But that cameo is no longer happening. Campbell said on Twitter [1]: "My scene in Oz has been cut before the shooting. It happens on epic flicks. Disappointed, but all good w/Sam. On to the next adventure!" Too bad that the cut happened before cameras rolled on Campbell »

Morning Meme:Matt Bomer Shakes It Best, Dan Savage Gets Glitter Bombed, and Taylor Lautner Teams With Gus Van Sant

3 November 2011 2:54 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Olivia Munn says that she's front and center to watch her hot costars shake their money makers on the set of Magic Mike. And in spite of being at the elegant Princess Grace Gala, she says "Like, right now, I'm mad. I'm furious that I'm not there watching Matt Bomer shake it, because he can shake it, probably better than most people in the world."

CBS has won an appeal about the "wardrobe malfunction" Janet Jackson had at the 2004 Super Bowl. I know I'm exaggerating, but does anyone else wonder if the government could save a ton of money by not fighting these stupid morality battles in court for seven years and counting? And right on cue, the Parents Television Council is outraged.

Speaking of our government, they passed a bill in the House today affirming that "In God We Trust" is the motto of the United States. I'm surprised »

James Franco Joins Spring Breakers

1 November 2011 2:57 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

There was a time when it felt as though James Franco was attached to every project out there – or at least rumoured for it. While it doesn’t appear that he’s slowing down his work rate much, he is at least locked into shooting Oz: The Great And Powerful for a while. But he’s already lining up other jobs for once he’s free of Sam Raimi’s clutches. Franco has agreed to take a supporting role in Harmony Korine’s new indie pic Spring Breakers.The plot sees four college girls deciding that the only way they’ll be able to afford a really fun trip on spring break is to rob a fast food restaurant. Sadly for them, the authorities are waiting for them once they arrive in Florida, and they’re swiftly arrested.But then Alien (Franco), a dodgy arms/drug dealer, spies an opportunity, »

Michelle Williams: 'Oz The Great And Powerful' Is 'Like A Magical Wonderland'

27 October 2011 8:28 AM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Despite the fact that we know little-to-nothing about Sam Raimi's sure-to-be-excellent "Oz: The Great And Powerful," aside from its intriguing A-list cast and basic premise of course, we're pretty sure it's going to be one of our favorite movies of 2013. Raimi just seems like the perfect person to take us back to Oz, and since he has the likes James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams and Zach Braff with him for the ride, it just seems like a slam dunk.

Anyway, the only problem with the film so far is that none of the parties involved will tell us anything about it! When MTV News happened upon the lovely yet reserved Ms. Williams at the Hollywood Awards Gala recently however, we did get a few good descriptors about what life has been like on set and working with Mr. Sam Raimi.
