Back Over The Rainbow
By Nick Stergiopoulos
Spider-Man director Sam Raimi (left) is set to direct a prequel to
Victor Fleming’s 1939 classic, entitled Oz: The Great and Powerful. According to Deadline, the Disney film will follow Oz’s
wizard (likely played by Robert Downey Jr.) before he became the wizard we all
know: “He’s in fact a circus wrangler transported by tornado to the mysterious
world of Oz where he gets mistaken for a know-it-all.”
In addition, Summertime Entertainment is planning a
CG-animated sequel to The Wizard of Oz, with Dorothy being voiced by Glee’s Lea
Michele. Michele has been holding her own against gay icons lately (Streisand, Gaga, Madonna), but even so, Garland's ruby red shoes will not be easy to fill!
