We’ve always maintained that The Wizard of Oz is rife with horror elements. In fact, as charming as it may be, it’s also one of the creepiest films ever made. True, that’s not exactly popular opinion, but the new feature Oz Wars may make you look at things a bit differently.
According to Variety Vanguard Films has tapped Mike Johnson, co-director of Corpse Bride, to helm its CG/stop-motion feature Oz Wars.
Oz Wars, written by Rob Moreland and Athena Gam, is a transformation of the Oz narrative with Dorothy caught up in a whirlwind of warrior witches, black magic, martial arts and monsters against a contemporary backdrop.
Oz Wars is an “animated action-adventure story, but unlike most animated films, it’s not just for kids,” Johnson said. “The Land of Oz will be reimagined using stop-motion to create a world that’s dark, slick, sexy and dangerous.”
Look for more soon.
