Is Wicked becoming a Movie?


Is Wicked ever coming a Movie?

Newspaper USA Today comments that “Hollywood apparently thinks the time is right for remakes of the 1939 classic“. What do you think and wish? Comment with your opinion.

I share the article below:

Hollywood weighs at least four ‘Wizard of Oz’ remakes. Oh My!

With the 3-D film Alice in Wonderland booming at the box office, Hollywood apparently thinks the time is right for remakes of the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Tuesday, the Times reported on Warner Bros. plans, which include one project that “skews a little darker”  and focuses on a granddaughter of Dorothy who returns to Oz to fight evil.
The Times, in today’s exclusive, says Universal and Disney have their own Oz-related projects.
Universal has Wicked, the Broadway musical that is a prequel to events in the film and the children’s books by L. Frank Baum, while Disney’s project tackles how the wizard came to sit behind the curtain in the first place.
“Some critics may bray, but if it’s done well, the movie could be kind of brilliant, a deepening of the mythology that started withThe Wiz and continued with Wicked,” say Times reporters Steven Zeitchik and Claudia Eller.
