Its true, its true, its true!
Sci-Fi is remaking Wizard of Oz as a 6-hr mini-series in December!
I am not sure how I feel about it so far though - although I have to say, I kinda like Zooey Deschanel ever since I saw her in THHG. I also kinda like Alan Cumming [Grey Matters (GREAT MOVIE), Romy and Michele's High School Reunion]. I'm just not sure about Richard Dreyfuss as the "Mystic Man"... We'll see, though.
Here is a link to some promo pics... They are a little boring - hopefully they aren't an indication of the mini-series itself!
Here are a few more links about it if you are interested:
