Weekly Update: 'Wicked' Movie and Other Things

Happy Friday!

The highly anticipated film adaptation of the musical Wicked seems to be moving forward. Stephen Daldry, who recently directed Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, is in talks with Universal to direct according to /Film. 

As most of you probably know, Dorothy and the Witches of Oz will be screened tomorrow afternoon at Winkie-Con in Pacific Grove, California. This version of the movie has only been shown theatrically, so don't miss this opportunity to see the film!

The Facebook page for Dorothy and the Lost Girls has released some concept art from the movie. You can check that out right here.

Our friends at L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz have recently cast Ku-Klip, who looks remarkably like Jamie Hyneman of Mythbusters. You can read all about filming that scene here.

I recently watched The Dark Knight Rises, and I spotted the Oz the Great and Powerful poster at the movie theater! So, of course, I had to snap a picture...

I was also very pleasantly surprised to see the teaser trailer shown before the movie, and it was interesting to look around and see people's reactions to the trailer. 

That's it for this week!

Can I just say that I'm kind of surprised a sequel is actually being planned for "Dorothy and the Witches of Oz"? I hadn't imagined that that project was successful enough to warrant a follow-up.
