Syfy Lands Timur Bekmambetov to Produce Post-Apocalyptic Warriors of Oz Mini-SeriesDirector Timur Bekmambetov is venturing into television with “Warriors of Oz,” a mini-series project from Syfy that reimagines The Wizard of Oz. Bekmambetov will create “Warriors of Oz” based on his own idea.

Per Deadline, the premise is a fantasy-action reimagining of the classic story in which a warrior from present day Earth is transported to a post-apocalyptic future Oz, where he must team up with three other warriors – Heartless, Brainless, and Coward – in order to defeat the evil Wizard who has enslaved the land.

Bekmambetov (Night Watch/Day Watch, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) is set to executive produce and possibly direct. The search is on for a writer, and the project will be produced by Universal Cable Productions.

Look for more soon!
