Eyebrows were raised when it was announced that Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaire - of "Rabbit Hole" fame - signed on to work on the screenplay for Sam Raimi's "Oz: The Great and Powerful," a prequel slated to star James Franco and Mila Kunis.
Actually, Raimi and Lindsay-Abaire nearly collaborated on the film version of Lindsay-Abaair's "Rabbit Hole." If you go back and do some research, you'll find that Raimi was the first director originally linked to the Nicole Kidman-starrer.
After Raimi bowed out, John Cameron Mitchell signed on.
Now you know.
