Joey King Joins 'Oz, The Great and Powerful'

Joey King is just raking in the roles!

In addition to landing a role in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, it was also just announced that the 11-year-old actress will be starring opposite James Franco in Oz, The Great and Powerful.

Variety reports that Joey will play China Girl, a young character made of porcelain whose family has been destroyed by the villainous Evanora (Rachel Weisz).

James, who plays the wizard, takes pity on China Girl and becomes a bit of a surrogate father.

Oz, The Great and Powerful is set to hit theaters on March 8th, 2013.

Congrats, Joey!
