Actor James Franco has reportedly landed his grandmother a role in The Wizard of Oz prequel.

Franco plays the wizard in Oz: The Great and Powerful, based on the books of L Frank Baum. The actor asked the producers if his grandmother Mitzie Verne could make a special appearance, and his wish was granted.

"James is very family-orientated. He is very close to his grandma and managed to get her a role in the Oz film. She played a towns-person in the end," dailymail.co.uk quoted a source as saying.

The movie is due for release in March this year.
