View Full Version : Bruckheimer, Disney visit American McGee 'Oz'
01 January 2004, 10:17 PM
"Video game creator American McGee, who most recently brought a twisted retelling of "Alice in Wonderland" to gamers, has turned his imagination on "The Wizard of Oz." Jerry Bruckheimer Films and Walt Disney Pictures have optioned the movie rights already, and other media deals are either signed or pending. There's no time frame for the first film of what will be a trilogy, McGee said, but screenwriters Kevin and Dan Hageman are attached. McGee said games, books and other projects featuring his unique vision of "Oz" also are being developed."

I just hope the next game can live up to the fantastic trip that was Alice.:D

I'd love to see a Rob Zombie version of this film. He's got the right head for it.

I wouldn't hold my breath...talk of the oz game has been going for like 3-4 years now, and there's still nothing but concept art on the carbon 6 website. If the movie moves as slow as the game has it'll never be released. Props to American for thinking big, but one step at a time dude... :)

I remember there being talk of an X Men movie back when I was in high school (between 1991-1994). We all waited a long time for that one as well.
