Warner Bros. get Oz rights for McFarlane, Olsen

by on Aug.23, 2007, under Movies

Spawn creator Todd McFarlane and screenwriter Josh Olson (Masters of Science Fiction “The Discarded”) have had an idea to revisit the land of Oz – now Warner Brothers is making it possible. WB has purchased the rights to all 15 of the Oz books (14 by L. Frank Baum, and 1 by another author), stocking up for a possible franchise. McFarlane and Olsen have slightly different ideas on the tone of the movie – McFarlane wants a darker, PG-13 film, whereas Olsen is thinking PG.
