Wizard Of Oz Remake In Pipeline
Now that the Wizard Of Oz has suffered the indignity of being turned into a Broadway show and a crap reality television contest, it now being reported that director Robert Zemeckis has begun talks with Warner Bros. to remake the classic children’s fable.
Warner Bros. own the rights to the original film and intend on using the original script for the remake according to Deadline.
Bizarrely, a rival project, spearheaded by Disney, is also in pre-production stages under the title of The Great & The Powerful Oz which has Robert Downey Jr. currently attached to star. Sam Raimi will helm the film.
