I liked it better when ‘Oz the Great and Powerful' was called 'Army of Darkness' (by maddoxaom)

Same movie?

The court ruled that “the scope of the film copyrights covers all visual depictions of the film characters at issue.”

So even though characters from the book The Wizard of Oz have gone into public domain, Warner Bros’ depiction of them in the classic film adaptation is still under copyright.

That sound you hear are the lawyers at Disney calling up Sam Raimi.

With Sam Raimi at the helm.

Deadline confirms…

Sam Raimi is set to direct Robert Downey Jr in Disney’s extravagant ‘Wizard of Oz’ 3D prequel. I understand that talks to hire Raimi for Oz: The Great And Powerful turned into a deal last night finalized by CAA. It’s a coup for new studio bosses Rich Ross and Sean Bailey, who are rolling the dice big-time by hoping that this pic will be a global hit like the billion-dollar-grossing Alice In Wonderland. Downey will play the Wizard Of Oz before he became the Wizard Of Oz circa the 1939 iconic film.

Another tentpole movie for Raimi and RDJ (this makes his third). Some guys get all the glory.
