Oh man! Not the original “Wizard of Oz”! It doesn’t need a remake! Warner Bros. is in talks with Robert Zemeckis to direct a live action remake, of the “Wizard of Oz”. They plan to use the original 1939 script that Warner Bros. owns. They own the script because it came with the MGM library that WB’s bought off of Ted Turner. The script was written by Noel Langley, Florence Ryerson, and Edgar Allan Woolf.
Disney is developing a prequel titled, “Oz: The Great and Powerful” to be directed by Sam Raimi.

Who would want to see a “Wizard of Oz”, remake? They’re probably gonna get Amy Adams as Dorothy since Amy can sing. Will Tom Hanks be the Scarecrow, Tin Man or the Cowardly Lioin?
