Do you want another new flick based on the 'Wizard of Oz'? Hopefully you've said yes, because another film is being tossed onto the ever-growing pile. If not, throw on those ruby red slippers and click your heels together until the wizard grants your wish. (Though we're not sure he has the power to defeat Hollywood!)

Variety reports that Mike Johnson, who co-directed 'Corpse Bride' alongside Tim Burton, will helm a stop-motion/CG film called 'Oz Wars' for Vanguard Films. Written by Rob Moreland and Athena Gam, this is another re-jiggling of the Oz story. This time, Dorothy gets "caught up in a whirlwind of warrior witches, black magic, martial arts and monsters against a contemporary backdrop."
