The Sci-Fi Wire reports that Todd McFarlane, creator of the once hit comic book “Spawn” is teaming up with Josh Olson (“A History of Violence”) to produce an updated revisionist take on “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz”.
The duo is still working on the tone of the film (which, in all honesty, is probably not a good start) because the two don’t seem to agree on exactly what the feel, look, and (probably) audience will be. McFarlane wants a darker, PG-13 styled film, while Olson would like to do something more PG oriented.
Just my two cents – but I don’t think this one will ever see the light of day.
McFarlane has already done a pretty (IMO) disgusting version of the Oz characters as “action figures”. You can click here to see them. His version of the Wizard is pictured above, but I wouldn’t recommend looking at his version of Dorothy at work. There’s no nudity – but since she appears to be tortured, and is ALMOST naked – it still might get you in trouble.
