Better than a remake.

Interesting cast. Is there an actual story written about the wizard, or is this one just all made up by someone other then Baum?

We don't know that yet. It could be good. Return To Oz is still pretty awesome after all these years.

I have hopes that Raimi can produce something unique and engaging, but when he's working on a big-budget film within a major studio I can easily see any special vision he has eschewed for something more commercial (i.e. an Alice in Wonderland 2).

Cool poster. I have mixed feelings on this but I'll probably check it out.

It's Sam Raimi, not Tim Burton.

So is Franco going to play the doorman, the cabbie and the guard as well?

Who is Zack Braff playing? And Burton would do a "Goth Scarecrow" not an EMO one.

I'm fairly certain that was in reference to Emo Peter Parker from Spiderman 3

If this is *anything* like the 2010 "Alice in Wonderland"--I'm out. (I'm noticing that it has the producer of said movie...so I'm not holding out any hope).

I'm guessing there's going to be an underground rebellion of The Good Guys looking for The One who will lead/free them. Just remember that I said it first on this thread.

I'd like to point out that Disney made an Oz movie once and it pushed the limits of a PG rating in 1985. Hell, it even carried a warning on the VHS label that the film might not be suitable for children.

If Raimi makes his Oz movie like Return to Oz, hell, this might be good.

True. But that was before every major intellectual property geared towards a youth audience has to be RPG-ified for maximum merchandizing potential and therefore drained of anything limping towards originality.

But, I agree, "Return to Oz" rocked in its own perverse way.

The little interest I had in this just went down the tubes.
