Drew Barrymore confirmed for “Oz” sequel “Surrender Dorothy”


Hollywoodnews.com: Drew Barrymore was rumored to be attached to a “Wizard of Oz” project for weeks now. Today, the story has been confirmed.

Barrymore will direct “Surrender Dorothy,” a sequel to “Oz,” as her directoral follow-up to last year’s “Whip It!” Zach Helm, who penned Will Ferrell’s “Stranger Than Fiction,” will write the story, which follows Dorothy’s great-great-granddaughter on a similar adventure, according to Empire Online.

At one point, it was rumored Barrymore would star in the film. Robert Downey Jr. also has been linked to an “Oz” project, though it might not be Barrymore’s version. Of course, there’s also an adaptation of the beloved musical “Wicked” in development at Universal, though news on that front has not emerged since 2008.

Which Wicked Witch will make it to theaters first? Our money is on Barrymore, providing she can get the right cast in place. Stay tuned for more details as they bubble up.
