We don’t know about you cats, but we find The Wizard of Oz to be one frighteningly bizarre tale! Flying monkeys! Talking trees! The Lollypop Guild! It’s the stuff of nightmares, man! And let’s not forget the Wicked Witch herself, who in her day sent many a shiver down childhood spines! Ever wonder whatever evils she was capable of? Thanks to ABC and Salma Hayek, we’re about to find out!
According to TV Line the actress-producer is teaming with ABC to develop an eight-hour miniseries adaptation of Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, the Gregory Maguire bestseller that spawned the Broadway phenom.
The upcoming miniseries would be based on the novel and not the musical. As a result, this “Wicked” would be less of a prequel and more of a parallel story to The Wizard of Oz. Universal, as you may know, is currently developing a Wicked film, and that would be based on the musical.
Look for more soon!
