Gina Wilhelm Actress – Is Dakota Going to Oz?
Dakota Fanning may be playing the lead in a planned sequel to “The Wizard of Oz.”
The planned movie will be distributed by Warner Bros. and co-produced by Todd McFarlane, who produced “Spawn.”
A Warner Bros. executive promises the sequel will be “darker and more action-packed” than the original MGM musical starring Judy Garland. McFarlane likewise has promised this version will be edgy.
He says she’ll be “much closer to the Ripley character from ‘Alien’ than a helpless singing girl.” Ripley, of course, was placed by Sigourney Weaver.
If she were to get the role, Fanning would play Dorothy Gale’s granddaughter.
