Robert Downey Jr to Star in Wizard of Oz Movie?

Robert Downey Jr is reportedly set to play the lead role in a film prequel of the ‘The Wizard of Oz.” entitled “Oz: The Great and Powerful.”

Instead of following Dorothy this version is based on parts of the original L. Frank Baum's Oz books, and Downey Jr. would play The Wizard from a travelling circus who mysteriously lands in Oz.

Oscar winning director Sam Mendes is under consideration for the project but reports have also hinted that “Hairspray” director Adam Shankman could get behind the camera, reports The New York Daily News.
