The Wizard of Outer Zone
I recently heard of this weird new version of The Wizard of Oz: the Sci-Fi Channel is going to produce a 6-hour mini serie Tin Man about a girl DG who’s thrust into the fantasy realm the Outer Zone (O.Z.). Zooey Deschanel has been cast as DG (from The HItchhikers Guide to the Universe and the sister of Emily Deschanel from Bones). I quote:
Tin Man is a psychedelic, often twisted and always outrageous take on the book. DG must discover her true identity, battle evil monkey-bats and fulfill her destiny. Her perilous journey begins on the fabled Old Road that leads to a wizard known as the Mystic Man.
