What on Earth? Didn't the remake of Pyscho teach people anything??
Warner Brothers has reportedly approached director Robert Zemeckis to helm a live-action remake of The Wizard of Oz, using the ORIGINAL script from the 1939 version!
Although that film was produced by MGM, Warner Brothers acquired the rights to the screenplay after Ted Turner bought it. Warner Brothers than bought Turner's empire, which gave them the rights to the work!
Wow. We're happy to see Robert Zemeckis moving away from all of that creepy performance capture stuff, but this could be disastrous!
A lot of care must be taken if this actually goes into production!
Let's hope it ends up a nice tribute to the original, and not an embarrassing, unnecessary mess.
What do U think?? Should this Wizard of Oz remake happen??
