Raimi to Direct OZ Prequel!

As we reported, Robert Downey was recently “unofficially” attached to The Wizard of Oz prequel The Great and Powerful.  Now Variety is reporting that Sam Raimi is circling this project with the thought of directing it.  Interesting.

Like everyone else, we’re sick of all the remakes, reboots, sequels and reimaginings.  But this one, chronicling the life of a snake oil sales who rises to become the ruler of Oz, actually seems like a story worth telling.  So we’re not surprised it’s attracting such A-List talent.
