Disney has signed epic Hollywood director Sam Rami and box-office titan Robert Downey, Jr. to direct and star in a prequel to the 1939 movie classic The Wizard of Oz. Downey has been tapped to play the Wizard of Oz. Sami Rami recently walked away from directing Spiderman 4 and Robert Downey, Jr., is flying high off the huge commercial success of Iron Man 2.
The movie will be called Oz: The Great and Powerful. The film is being referred to as a big-budget epic. Sounds like a winning proposition!
A 72-year-old Cherry Hill, NJ grandmother is in the Camden County jail on three counts of conspiracy and $300,000.00 bail. Evidently Mom-Mom tried to unknowingly hire an undercover police officer to “inflict serious bodily injury” on her ex-husband, son and daughter. The neighbors were not surprised and said this situation has been brewing for 30 years. Police also have a large file on Mom-Mom (say it ain’t so Joe).
Nothing said lovin’ like puttin’ out a contract for a beat-down on your children and ex-husband.
Lions and tigers and bears, OH MY!
