Thought this is interesting....

Drew Barrymore might be directing the new Wizard of Oz remake.....her second film as director (I think she did fine on the first one, IMO)

Now...do not get visions of "Ellen playing Dorothy"....but, hey...who thought Ellen would be on The Simpsons :biggrin: Follow the yellow brick road....follow the yellow brick road....

Yeah, worth keeping an eye on. The original article from: http://www.pajiba.com/trade_news/exclus ... erella.php refers to the project as "Surrender Dorothy".
The project is still set up at Warner Brothers and Flower Films (Barrymore’s production company), though I have no word on whether she’s still planning to star as the great, great granddaughter of Dorothy who has to learn how to use the power of those ruby red slippers to keep the Wicked Witch of the West from taking control of the kingdoms of Earth and Oz.
