Sam Raimi will direct Wizard of Oz prequel

20 Jun 2010

Disney is going to do a reboot of the 1939 classic iconic film Wizard of Oz and Sam Raimi will be directing it. Of course it will be done in digital 3D also. Sources say the film will be a prequel to the original dealing with the Wizard himself as a youngster that gets via tornado to Oz. Which to my surprise in one of the comments there was a refference of how the story would not match up to the original stories of Oz . 40 of them to be exact . Most you can read on line for free because its public domain (Project Gutenberg is one of those online Public Domain sites).

I am sure Disney will do a good job with this movie and the children will love it. But I thought it would be fun to do some research and look into the Wizards beginnings mainly out of curiosity but also to see how close the movie plot when it finally comes out would be based off the novels or will Disney and the screen writers just take a totally new direction all together.

Planet of the Apes prequel in planning stage

15 Mar 2010

News from Sci Fi Wire, CHUD, and Deadline Hollywood came out that director Rupert Wyatt is given the mon-KEYs (sorry for the bad humor) to the franchise  to direct a prequel of Planet of the Apes. The non official working title of the film is Caesar: Rise of the Apes which ties it directly to the old original series of films itself. If you remembered your Apeology correctly, Caesar was the son of Cornelius and Zira and was born in modern times after the pair traveled back into time in the movie Escape from the Planet of the Apes in 1971 and later was featured in the movies Conquest of the Planet of the Apes as a revolutionary leader and then in Battle for the Planet of the Apes as the ape leader.

Ape fact: He was born as Milo and then later on choosing the name Caesar in defiance of human rule.

CHUD warns that this film for us that have seen the series will not be overly surprised with some of the content but offers some interesting points and hints on the film.
