Drew Barrymore To Follow The Yellow Brick Road

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?

    ……AND THEY GET PAID THE BIG BUCKS.

    This is just wrong, wrong, wrong…. is nothing sacred in Hollywood??
    Don't remake Godfather. Don't remake Rocky. Don't remake Lethal Weapon. Don't remake Casablanca. And… hello… don't remake Wizard of Oz or Gone with the Wind!!! Is this asking so much, people???!?!?!

  12. 12

    An overdue secquel? The movie ended with Dorothy waking up from a dream. What's the sequel going to do, show her getting up and having breakfast?

    That dress is just horrible for her body type.

    This already had a sequel called return to Oz… so it's not really overdue, it's been done… on another note. There are so many Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland remakes. WHy doesn't anyone do a sleeping beauty or a little mermaid movie or something… just a thought.



  17. 17

    yup! tranny!



  18. 18

  20. 20

    i love the wizard of oz, and i would LOVE to see a remake. go for it, girl!!



  21. 21

    Fuck off Tim Burton - you already massacred Willy Wonka. LEAVE IT THE FUCK ALONE AND TRY CREATING SOMETHING ORIGINAL!!



  22. 22

    LEAVE THE WIZARD OF OZ ALONE all my favourite movies are getting ruined. Come up with an original script and concept, geez.



  23. 23

    of course shell put herself in it. acting exactly the same as every other role shes ever played



  24. 24

    RETURN TO OZ fvcktards. Also - Whip It was a horrendous piece-of-shit. Wouldn't even let the cover line my cat's shitbox. Used to skate roller-derby & that shit would have NEVER gone down. Too bad Page & Lewis signed on for that 'cuz they normally kick ass. Drew should piss off & relegate herself to making Poison Ivy 5,6,7,8 etc. People who MAKE (much less watch) remakes have no integrity.



  25. 25

    lame



  26. 26

    christ on a cracker. leave the classics alone. please.



  27. 27

    DOUGH BOY MATRONLY



  28. 28

    I think Drew can handle that! She seems to think outside the box
