Move over Idina Menzel! Black Swan alum Mila Kunis has an eye on the role that put you in our crystal ball and ruby-slippered hearts forever.

Kunis is in talks to play the Wicked Witch of the West in the upcoming Oz, the Great and Powerful prequel.

According to Vulture, the film will tell the backstory of beloved Oz characters, including: the Wizard, Glinda the Good Witch, the hardly-ever mentioned Wicked Witch of the East (Evanorah) and the Wicked Witch of the West, Theodorah, played by Kunis. 

Robert Downey Jr. was originally set to play the Wizard but has since dropped out. Vulture reports that James Franco is said to be taking over the role, largely because Kunis is now on board.

Oz, the Great and Powerful is set to begin filming July 2011.
