Drew Barrymore: WIZARD OF OZ Director?

Drew Barrymore is rumored to direct Surrender Dorothy, a loose sequel to the 1939 movie musical classic, The Wizard of Oz.

“[Drew and her production company Flower Films] began developing Surrender Dorothy for Warner Bros. back in 1999,” a source close to the movie deal tells JustJared.com. “And we started again in December. WB loves Drew as a director but there’s no official deal in place.”

Below is the trailer for Drew and on-and-off-screen boyfriend Justin Long‘s new movie, Going the Distance.

    For the love of God NOOOOOOOOOO! Leave great films alone. We don’t need a prequel or sequel to one of the best films ever made. And Drew Barrymore? Come on. If you were inclined to make such a film, you need a great Hollywood director like Steven Spielberg. Why ruin this franchise and this great classic in people’s minds? Why is Hollywood so full of themselves that they think they can add anything new to a perfect film experience? It is so obnoxious. No wonder these sequels fail. All the egos in the world cannot replace Judy Garland and the greats who made this film like Margaret Mitchell who played the witch. I think this is an awful idea. Drew Barrymore has not directed anything worth watching. She and her long chin need to rethink this bad idea. It’s her ego that makes her think she can do this. Leave a classic alone!

    There are tons of books which could be adapted for movies; why do they need to screw up this classic AGAIN?? I don’t know why Hollywood has a need to redo what has already been done instead of exploring more diverse avenues. There have been a lot of remakes, sequels and prequels in recent years and although many have been financially successful, movie goers have been left with a bitter taste in their mouths. Even if a movie in it’s original form was creative, they suck the blood out of it until by the time they stop doing sequels everyone and their mother were praying for it to be over.

    I think movies can be creative, entertaining and financially successful, but few people are making these types of movie. Now it seems special effects have become the stars of the movies and the actors ( a word that is used loosely in some cases) are just the window dressing or sidekick to the effects. Maybe that’s the desire to do a remake, the effects. We didn’t have then the type of almost flawless effects that we have now. Maybe what’s what I like about the original; it’s nostalgic. Some things should just be left alone.
