Robert Downey Jr. is out in "Oz"

Robert Downey Jr. will no longer be in "Oz: The Great and Powerful". The Disney is eying the handsome Johnny Depp to join. Right now Depp is busy with other film. If he is not busy and his schedule is free then most likely he will accept the offer.

Robert Downey Jr who was jailed because of drug related case is a good actor. He portrayed Charlie Chaplin and even got a nomination in Oscar a couple of years ago.

Here is the more news about this taken from CNN.

You'll probably still get to go off and see the Wizard of Oz, but he won’t be played by Robert Downey, Jr.

According to Hollywood Reporter, Downey has dropped out of Sam Raimi’s “Oz: The Great and the Powerful,” and Disney is hoping Johnny Depp will step in.

Raimi’s “Oz" tells the story of “a young illusionist” who, after being ejected from a traveling circus, gets swept off to Oz in a hot air balloon during a tornado. Of course, the land is already run by two magical witches.

The studio is aiming to begin production on the movie later this year, and whether Depp is up for it will depend largely on timing.

The 48-year-old actor, whose films "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" and "Rango" arrive in theaters this year, is scheduled to begin shooting Tim Burton’s “Dark Shadows” in the spring, not to mention that he’s also expected to play Tonto in Disney’s “Lone Ranger.”

Raimi's film, however, isn't the only "Wizard"-related production out there. There's also "Dorothy of Oz," a 3-D animated feature starring Lea Michele, Kristin Chenowith, Kelsey Grammer, Martin Short and Hugh Dancy that should arrive in 2012.
