Dakota Fanning To Star In 'Wizard Of Oz' Sequel?
The film's producer, Basil Iwanyk, says, "It will be set in the present day and feature Dorothy's granddaughter."
The original film - based on L. Frank Baum's 1900 children's book "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" - won a number of awards including the Academy Award for Best Original Song.
Co-producer Todd McFarlane adds, "You've still got Dorothy trapped in an odd place, but she's much closer to the Ripley character from Alien than a helpless singing girl."
The classic original already has one sequel - the 1985 film, "Return to Oz," was based on Baum's novels "Ozma of Oz" and "The Marvelous Land of Oz."
