Prepare yourselves now, because the profusion of Wizard of Oz projects hitting in the next few years may start to get a little overwhelming. In no particular order, we already have lined up: Oz, the Great and Powerful, starring Robert Downey Jr. and (potentially) directed by Sam Raimi; Drew Barrymore’s proposed Wizard of Oz sequel, Surrender Dorothy; the Polish brothers’ Oz prequel; Dorthy of Oz, an animated outing; and one of two Warner Bros. remakes, which could either be the Todd McFarlane-produced re-envisioning or the simply titled Oz, written by Darren Lemke (co-writer of Bryan Singer’s upcoming Jack the Giant Killer).
That enough Oz mayhem for you? Or do you think we need one more?
Yup, Universal thinks we need one more. To fill out that already full roster, there’s the upcoming musical adaptation Wicked, a prequel to the classic Wizard of Oz tale that’s told from the perspective of the witches. This will mark the title’s third incarnation, which started as a bestselling novel before finding great success as a stage musical. Which director will be bringing the material to the big screen? The current line-up is enough to titillate: J.J. Abrams, James Mangold, Ryan Murphy and Rob Marshall. More on these selections after the break. Read More »

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is gearing up to shoot in the next few weeks, so it’s time to hear about all the additional cast that will join Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz and Ian McShane under the direction of Rob Marhsall. A few weeks back we mentioned that Stephen Graham was among the new recruits. He was recently seen in The Damned United and Public Enemies, but possibly best remembered for acting opposite Jason Statham in Snatch. (“Dags? Oh…DOGS.”) After Pirates 4, he might be best remembered for playing sidekick to Jack Sparrow. Read More »

Jerry Bruckheimer is getting less Disney money to play with. Over the years, Bruckheimer has produced a great many films for the studio, many with lavish budgets and appropriately epic scale. None more so than the Pirates of the Caribbean films, which have grown ever more outsized and expensive.
For the fourth chapter, On Stranger Tides, things will be different. And the changes could be quite positive. Read More »
