Audiences flocked to see Oz the Great and Powerful in theaters earlier this year and now genre producer Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) wants to bring the property to the small screen.  Finding a home at Syfy, Bekmambetov’s mini-series Warriors of Oz is based on his original idea in which “a warrior from present day Earth is transported to a post-apocalyptic future Oz where he must team up with three other warriors: Heartless, Brainless, and Coward, in order to defeat the evil Wizard who has enslaved the land.”  Deadline also reports that Bekmambetov will executive produce the mini-series and may direct; the search is on for a writer.  Fans of L. Frank Baum’s source material may remember the mini-series Tin Man that debuted in 2007, but Bekmambetov will certainly bring his own unique interpretation to the project.

    “Bekmambetov will certainly bring his own unique interpretation to the project.” —- which means he will stick to his usual trend of creating visuals that are derivative of superior pieces of popular culture

    Didn’t Syfy (It will always be Sci-fi to me) already do a Wizard of Oz miniseries with Zoey Dechanel and Richard Dreyfuss?

    Is this for real? And serious with the names? I hope it’s canceled after one episode. I wonder if he will star as brainless.
