Deadline reports that Warner Bros want Robert Zemeckis to remake The Wizard of Oz, i have no problem with the director. They want to use the original script, did they do that with the Psycho remake...that did not turn out so well. I have no problem watching Oz it to compare it to the charming 1939 version that i love.
"Warner Bros is in early talks with Robert Zemeckis to direct a live-action remake of the The Wizard of Oz and plans to use the original script from the 1939 classic. Warner Bros owns the screenplay because Ted Turner bought it along with the MGM library before Warner Bros bought Turner's empire...Whenever you remake a revered Hollywood film, there's bound to be controversy, but going right to the original material is certainly an interesting approach."
