Robert Downey Jr. is no longer attached to the upcoming Oz, the Great and Powerful, Heat Vision is reporting.

The film, to be directed by Sam Raimi, was previously set to star Downey as the Wizard from the original 1939 film, beginning with his life in Omaha and following the adventure he undertakes when a balloon accident leaves him stranded in the land of Oz.

The article suggests that Johnny Depp is the top name to replace Downey, which should come as no surprise after the tremendous box office take of the similarly-themed Alice in Wonderland last year.
