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.
Just make the wicked series, it will make millions upon millions. Wicked, Son of a Witch, and then the Cowardly Lion. It would do tremendous.
I agree. Wizard of Oz is a classic. we know that Hollywood has a tendency to cash in on anything that will make them money, but they should tread carefully. They should be working on Wicked. So long as the movie is centered around the musical and not the book it will make a great movie!
I don't think you can really touch a classic like "The Wizard of Oz." They have already tried one sequel called: "Return to Oz." based on one of the corresponding books in the series by L. Frank Baum. It did horribly. They should probably put more energy into making a film version of "Wicked." It is an extremely popular play and it wouldn't wreck the image of the original.
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
