Dakota Fanning WIZARD OF OZ Sequel?

dakota-fanning-wizard-of-oz-sequel


Dakota Fanning may star in a sequel to The Wizard Of Oz. Producer Basil Iwanyk said, ‘It will be set in the present day and feature Dorothy’s granddaughter. You’ve still got Dorothy trapped in an odd place, but she’s much closer to the Ripley character from Alien than a helpless singing girl.’

The original film, based on L. Frank Baum’s 1900 children’s book ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz‘, starred Judy Garland and won several awards. The first sequel ‘Return to Oz‘, made in 1985, was based on Baum’s novels ‘Ozma of Oz’ and ‘The Marvelous Land of Oz.’

    WTF. This idea should be scrapped.

    Oh wait. It will obviously earn money. So-rry. It’s a great idea! You guys will all be curious and go see the movie even it will obviously not be something of cinematic history other than the fact it is an insipid sequel to one of the greatest movies made.

    Do you want a chance to meet Mandy Vanduyne or Chester See?

    Follow the director and if he gets to 500 followers he’ll send out postcards one of which will include two tickets to Consumption’s premiere!

    Enough with the remakes and sequels. Come up with something new already.

    Ugh I hope not.
    I hate Daktoa, she’s annoying.
    And a sequel will just ruin the first movie.

  • Cheyanne

    Im sorry but Wizard of Oz is a classic movie and I don’t think a sequel is going to be very good. She’s a really good actress, it’s just not a good idea to do anything with wizard of oz

    She’s a great actress and all, but so overused. I mean, can’t they get a little variety?

    Whoever came up with this idea needs to be shot. You CANNOT make a sequel to such a classic.

  • Timber518

    Wow, NO! They SHOULD NOT make a sequel of that movie! I love all of the movie’s she’s in; she’s an incredible actress, but no! Bad idea. You can’t remake something like that. It’ll only suck and you know people are going to hate it just because it isn’t the same as the first one.

    I would love to see Dakota in a very dark new Wizard of Oz film. Dakota is great at being scared and crying.
