Warner Bros. merge inainte cu planurile remake-ului dupa clasicul The Wizard of Oz, raporteaza Deadline. [UPDATE]

Remake-ul este planificat sa fie filmat dupa scenariul din 1939 iar WB este in discutii cu Robert Zemeckis pentru regie.

Zemeckis lucreaza in prezent la animatia cu The Beatles numita Yellow Submarine si este posibil sa se ocupe si de Timeless (cu toate ca intr-un zvon se preciza ca de regia acestuia se va ocupa Phillip Noyce.)

Versiunea Warner Bros. pentru The Wizard of Oz va avea o “concurenta”din partea Disney care pregateste un film despre inceputurile povestii din Oz care se va numi Oz, the Great and Powerful, cu Sam Raimi pe post de regizor.

Summertime Entertainment, au si ei pregatita o continuare a animatiei Oz intitulata Dorothy of Oz, planificata pentru lansare anul viitor.

au declarat ca Robert Zemeckis NU se va ocupa de regie.


Warner Bros. has plans to move forward with a remake of the classic The Wizard of Oz, reports Deadline.

Planning to shoot from the script to the 1939 version (which, though it is by far the best known, wasn’t the first filmic iteration of the L. Frank Baum story), WB is said to be in talks with Robert Zemeckis to helm the property.

Zemeckis, meanwhile, is currently working on a performance-capture remake of The Beatles animated film, Yellow Submarine, and was announced to make a return to live action with a time travel story, Timeless (though that has been called into some question with the news that Phillip Noyce is now attached to potentially the same project.)

Warner Bros.’ version of The Wizard of Oz would go up against Disney’s planned Oz-prequel, Oz, the Great and Powerful, in development now with Sam Raimi attached to direct.

Summertime Entertainment, meanwhile, has planned an animated sequel to the original Oz tale entitled Dorothy of Oz, planned for release next year.

says NO Zemeckis in this one!
