Sam Raimi, 'Wizard of Oz' Prequel
Sam Raimi will Direct 'Wizard of Oz' Prequel, to this I say big deal. For a while now on the Scheme Comix Facebook page I've been regularly posting up a list of forth coming movies I could not care less about imaginatively titled "Another in a continuing set of posts out lining future film releases we could not careless about....." at this point it's at about No.20 and it has to be said that most of these are remakes or prequels which 9/10 suck the shit out of tramps asses. What's worse is when directors who are primarily known for their originality (Evil Dead, Darkman) start tickling the corporate ball sack. I know he's done plenty commercial pictures and TV shows but just like when Tim Burton tried to tackle Alice in Wonderland this Oz prequel stinks of the hipster trend that's gone on too long now for taking family friendly movies, books, comics.... and make them dark and, your god forgive 'COOL!'.
