Sexy story details emerge for Raimi and RDJ's Oz the Great and Powerful

Oct. 15, 2010by: Paul Tassi

Story details emerge for Raimi and RDJ's Oz the Great and Powerful I'm kind of sad that WORLD OF WARCRAFT won't be Sam Raimi's next feature, but now with this plot description for OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL, it's starting to look like a pretty worthwhile film.

Robert Downey Jr. is playing the titular Oz, and the film appears to be a straight-up prequel leading into the events of the classic OZ film.

From an inside source at Pajiba, here's the lowdown:

Thanks to the Hollywood Cog, we now know quite a few details about Mitchell Kapner's story, which would have the Wizard — a snake-oil salesman posing as a magician — enter Oz via a hot-air balloon, which he uses to escape an angry husband who has found out that Oz slept with his wife. There, Oz — a fast-talking huckster who wears a velveteen frock coat (yes, I can see that) — falls in love with Glinda (the Good Witch), and the two combine forces to Fight the Evil Witches Evanora and Theodora. Theodora starts out as a good witch, but after Oz jilts her sexual advances, Evanora — the truly evil witch — convinces Theodora to become an evil witch with her and help her to rule all of Oz. Both Evanora and Theodora are described as incredibly attractive, seductive women, and Theodora likes to wear black, thigh-high boots.

Three hot witches and RDJ in full mack mode? Sounds good to me. I'm also very interested to see what Oz looks like rendered in 2011 CGI. It almost might be worth a viewing in 3D. Did I just say that?

Return To Oz

Lets look at this as a prequel to Return to Oz, which was way more badass and awesome than Wizard of Oz (though that movie is great too). I don't know how it would work, but we don't have enough talk of Return to Oz, so I thought I'd pretend to get all worked up about it. Now I'm tired again.

Not to sound PC but sex shouldn't play into any aspect of this film. A straight up prequel to the original shouldn't be racy, it should give us a similar feeling to the original. I think we should just leave Oz alone because love triangles are not going to make it better.

I'd rather light my nuts on fire than see this get made. Love RDJ, but this sounds like ass.

FRTTTTT!

If this bizzaro crap cuts in to Avengers, Iron Man 3 or Sherlock 2 filming I'll be pissed. RDJ is too great to be wasting time on projects like this even if it is getting to play with and re-write movie history.

So, someone sat through about half of Wicked on Broadway, and than just made up the other half to get this script?

NiceGuyJohnny: 'The Wizard of Oz' wasn't a dream, that was merely the bastardization of the film they made. In the original books the land was very real and people (Dorothy) came and went at times.

This is a prequel to the film, not the books. NiceGuyJohnny's question is a valid one.

I hate to be negative but...

i just don't give a flying fuck about this project.
Even with Sam and RDJ.
Even trying to read the plot it sounded like gibberish bullshit.

This will inevitably be rated PG-13. It doesn't matter how many hot chicks they put in it at that point.

Seriously?

Why is this being made? It sounds terrible to me. I'm a fan of RDJ (Raimi, not so much) but this sounds like a joke to me. How any of this makes a good movie?

Brilliant

Sam Raimi is a genius. After what he did with Spider-Man and Drag Me To Hell, I believe that man can do anything. Plus the story sounds intriguing.

There was nothing brilliant about either of those movies. Fun? Yes.. maybe.. but brilliant? What?

This has

pretentious written all over it. But people will love it no matter what because "Oh look RDJ is being funny! Oh look RDJ is being flirty! Oh look RDJ is being a pimp! Oh look......." I'd rather not.

Much like Robin Hood and The Wolfman, this is a cool idea that will be destroyed by the studios and will eventually be turned into a PG rated 3D remake of the original. It will be nothing more than a shadow of the film that was meant to be.

Based off the description, the movie sounds great. I'm a die hard fan of Downey and have faith in everything he does, so consider me with excitement and anticipation for this flick.
