As the director!
Last year, Drew Barymore made her directorial debut with Whip It!. Now, she is looking to her next project and it looks like she is going to take a Tim Burton approach.
Sources say that Drew is considering helming a remake of The Wizard of Oz, or rather, an overdue sequel to the story called Surrender Dorothy. The gist of the flick is that Dorothy's great-great-granddaughter has to "learn to wield the power of the ruby slippers to protect both Oz and our own world from the Wicked Witch of the West."
Supposedly, a similar version of the film was under consideration a few years ago with Drew set to star. Whatever happened then, it fell through and there is no word whether Drew intends to star in this latest adpation along with directing.
Our guess would be yes, though.
Interested in seeing this get made?
