Robert Downey Jr. & Sam Mendes for ‘Oz’ Remake?

This is the oddest rumor in a long time. Supposedly, Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man 2) is eying up the newly announced Wizard of Oz remake. That’s not all though, Sam Mendes, director of American Beauty and Road to Perdition, is also interested in directing, now that Bond 23 is no more.

Two possible stories are being kicked around. An extremely stupid one involving Dorothy’s granddaughter traveling to Oz to fight evil and an adaptation of Oz the Great and Powerful, which is a prequel based upon a book written by L. Frank Baum (the series creator).

I’m a firm believer that Downey being attached to any project makes it at least worth checking out.
