Disney Set To Make Wizard Of Oz Prequel

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!
