Drew Barrymore is rumored to be directing the sequel to the movie 'Wizard of Oz' that is 'Surrender Dorothy'. Drew was originally going to star in the film. But being too old, the star role of 'Never Been Kissed' was replaced Ellen Page.
Independent.co.uk reported yesterday, Thursday (05/20/2010) 35 years old actress has been picked 'Surrender Dorothy' for directed after previously working on the movie “Whip It!”.
The project sequel of the film was first announced in 2002 and working was postponed. But 'Surrender Dorothy' is still below the company of Warner Brothers, and Drew film production company, "Flower Films". Now the film will be re-done.
Drew was selected to play the role of Dorothy's great-granddaughter, but her appearance was considered too old. Then Ellen Page who starred in the movie “Whip It!” was chosen because the age is closer to the main character's age.
Scenario 'Surrender Dorothy' was written by Zach Helm. The film tells the story of Dorothy's great-grandson who must learn how to use the power of the ruby red slippers to prevent the evil witch has power over the planet and Oz.
Apart from 'Surrender Dorothy', there are also some sequel to 'Wizard of Oz' which also will be produced other Hollywood stars.
