Sam Raimi will reboot the Wizard of Oz for Disney. Really.

Sam Raimi : The Director For Directors
Reports suggest that Sam Raimi will be directing Oz, the Great and Powerful for Disney. With strong competitors like Timur Bekmambetov, Sam Mendes, and Guillermo del Toro, Raimi had a tough time. However, strong dedication as he calls it helped him to stand out from the crowd. There have been flying talks suggesting that Robert Downey Jr. will be starring in the movie, however, nothing has been confirmed yet. This is the first official project of Riami soon after he left the Spiderman franchise way behind. Now, with a good offer at his hand do you think that Raimi will soon plan for a prequel to The Wizard of Oz. God knows what’s cooking up in his mind.
