Posted: October 7th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Sam Raimi Signs On for "Wizard of Oz" PrequelSubmit Comment
After Sam Raimi dropped out of "Spider-Man 4," he had "Wizard of Oz" prequel and a movie based on the "World of Warcraft" video game to choose from for his next project.

Disney is now happy to report that Raimi has signed on to direct "Oz: The Great and Powerful," which is told from the point of view of the Wizard. It tells how the Wizard arrives in Oz and how he became the ruler.

The new movie will be in 3D and has Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man) attached to play the Wizard. While the actor has yet to be locked it, sources claim that it will happen soon.

Looking at that pic Raimi looks beat up and old. Guess much criticism about SM3 will that to a man.(I kid)

Sounds good. Least Tim Burton isn't directing and giving us Johnny Depp in this

Wizard of oz' prequel..are you f*cking kidding me?? I'd rather watch Spiderman3. Apparently Sam Raimi has lost his senses (of money).....

I love the idea of Raimi helming this. His style is a great fit and although there will NEVER be another Bruce Campbell, I think RDJ will blend nicely with Raimi's style of work.
I'm thrilled.

Disney is now happy to report that Raimi has signed on to direct "Oz: The Great and Powerful," which is told from the point of view of the Wizard. It tells how the Wizard arrives in Oz and how he became the ruler.

... And how he really felt about the Wicked Witch of the West, which turns out to be his retarded, ballistic half-sister from his stepmother. And how the Good Witch of the North is really his mistress, asking him repeatedly to penetrate all her orifices with his "emerald wand" and how they would invite the Cowardly Lion (who became cowardly over a torture-porn event that scared him sh*tless) for a beastility party with the flying monkeys, who defecate and toss their feces constantly into the open, c*mstained mouth of Glenda ... and how the Scarecrow originally was getting his straw testicles, anus and eyeballs constantly being tortured by the crows, who sh*t in his eyes constantly ... and how the Tin Man originally had a human heart infused into his mechanic body, but how the Wizard would play mad scientist and f*ck his body up week after week with odd pieces here and there and rusted metal from the local, tainted junkyard ....

Does Sam Raimi have a lazy eye and a facial resembleance to a bloated Jeffrey Jones with a bad combover in that picture, or is it just me ?

No, Jeffrey Jones has dried boy spooch on his bottom lip (just like Che's dad).

Damnit Raimi, what the hell happened? I was expecting another horror classic. After Mrs. Ganush I was really looking forward to your next job. But WOW, Oz? Really? Don't come back if you're not carrying at least an Evil Dead IV draft.

coldplay-

It would be good to see an Evil Dead pt4 , But would they have that same effect now that the 1st 2 had back in the 80's ,proper old school horror film making at it's best.

Didn't like part 3 at all ....

@tt: Yeah, ppl wouldn't "get it", I know because some guys just scream that Drag Me To Hell was awful, when they don't even know that it isn't supouse to be an oscar contender. But I would love him to it, just for us fans. Army of Darkness was fun, but nothin' like Part 1 or Part 2, again, they where awesome in their own way.
