Corpse Bride Co-Director Set For Dorothy Remake Oz Wars

According to Variety, Mike Johnson, the co-director of Corpse Bride, is heading up a new stop motion feature based on a modern and darker adaptation of The Wizard of Oz called Oz Wars, with script writers Rob Moreland and Athena Gam. This time around, Dorothy is set to get into scrapes with “warrior witches, black magic, martial arts and monsters”.

John Williams from Vanguard Films claims that Oz Wars will have darker undertones so will be targeted for adults as well as kids.

I really hope this is true, I never read the book but I did read the comic adaptation done by Marvel and it was very dark and twisted and nothing like the film I watched when I was a child.
