Disney’s “Oz: The Great And Powerful” is rumored to be filming in Michigan. The movie will be a prequel to the classic movie “The Wizard of Oz” and will be directed by Sam Raimi. It is expected that Johnny Depp will play the lead role of Oz, after actor Robert Downey Jr. dropped out of the movie.

The movie may film at the new production studio in Pontiac, which recently won approval for a $40-million tax credit that comprises more than 60% of all credits for 26 projects approved in the last six months of last year.

A movie has applied to the Michigan Film Office for a tax credit recently, however the film’s title has not been revealed. However, the production company was listed as Emerald City Films. Emerald City is the capital of the fictional Oz. Do you think the movie is “Oz: The Great and Powerful“?
