Sam Raimi is finally ready to start filming, “Oz: The Great and Powerful”. The former, “Spiderman” director has already let Disney know that he’s ready to film it very soon. They still hope Robert Downey Jr., will be up for the leading role as the Wizard and it’s looking like Downey will be up for the role. See the article here at, Deadline.
Hmmmm, I still wonder if Sam’s take on “Wizard of Oz” will be dark or will it be a happy film for children or a little bit of both. There’s gotta be a reason why Disney wanted Sam Raimi for this ’cause maybe there is a lot of dark and horror fiction related material in the script?
