'Wizard of Oz' Sequel Starring Dakota Fanning?

With darker re-imaginings of Alice in Wonderland and Little Red Riding Hood on the way, it was only a matter of time before Hollywood brought back The Wizard of Oz and kicked that sucker up a notch. According to an article in Britain's The Daily Express, Warner Bros. is getting ready to unleash their so-called Wizard of Oz sequel, based on a script by Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, who's been working on his darker version of the classic tale -- currently titled Twisted Land of Oz -- since 2007.

Not all the details have emerged yet, though according to The Daily Express, this new updated Oz will be set in the present day and feature Dorothy's granddaughter. Naturally Dakota Fanning's name has jumped to the top of the list right away, though one imagines it's a wish list and they haven't cast her yet.
In the meantime, fans of Dorothy, Toto, Tin Man, Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion will get a chance to see them all up on the big screen real soon as the iconic 1939 version of The Wizard of Oz will be heading back to play in theaters for one night only on Wednesday, September 23rd. Folks will have the chance to watch the film in high definition for the first time as it celebrates its 70th anniversary and gets ready to hit Blu-ray. Head over here for more info.
