Hollywood wants to remake the famous children’s book classic “The Wizard of Oz” (“The Wizard of Oz”).

US filmmaker Nicole Kassell (49, “No Means against Love”, “Watchmen”) is on board as a director. She is very happy to tell this legendary fairy tale about topics such as courage, love, wisdom and home, said Kassell, as “Variety” reported Tuesday.

The fairy tale template by author Lyman Frank Baum from 1900 is about the adventures of the farmer’s daughter Dorothy, who is on her way to the Wizard of Oz with her little dog Toto. The film adaptation from 1939 with the then 16-year-old leading actress Judy Garland was awarded two Oscars, including the title song “Over the Rainbow”.

The fairy tale with characters like the tin man, the scarecrow and the fearful lion with Dorothy’s red magic shoes has been filmed several times. Initially, nothing was known about the possible cast and the start of shooting for the new edition.
