According to Deadline, Sam Raimi has signed to film ‘The Great and Powerful, the Wizard of Oz’. What this means is that people wanting to see the ‘World of Warcraft’
movie will have to wait a while longer because ‘Oz’ will come first.
Disney is hoping that the Oz prequel will have success similar to ‘Alice in Wonderland’. Robert Downey Jr. has been linked to the Oz film, as the lead character, but nothing is confirmed as of now.
