Dakota To Be The New Dorothy?
Well she hasn’t overdosed yet so we’re putting our money on Dakota Fanning being the most recent and successful child-to-adult star. Take note Lindsay Lohan.
Making waves when she was younger in films like I am Sam and War of The Worlds, Dakota has proven that she’s got impressive acting chops but if rumours are to be believed then she’s got a big challenge ahead of her.
A Wizard of Oz sequel that is currently being developed by Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, will apparently have Dakota starring as a Dorothy type of character that will most likely be Dorothy’s granddaughter. To many Dakota will be stepping into the ruby slippers of Judy Garland which will not be easy shoes to fill.
To be set in the modern day world, McFarlane says of the project, “You’ve still got Dorothy trapped in an odd place, but she’s much closer to the Ripley character from Alien than a helpless singing girl.”
70 years after the original movie, we’re still not ready for this remake.
