Today (March 8) Oz The Great And Powerful hits theaters nationwide, and theres already plans for a sequel.
According to a report, a second installment of James Francos fantasy flick has been in the works for a few months, with screenwriter Mitchell Kapner already on the case.
And though theres no hard numbers to justify a sequel just yet, projections call for between $75 million and $80 million in first-weekend ticket sales.
Producer Joe Roth told press, These are stories that lasted the test of time. So there has to be elements in there that speak to a lot of people. So what I”m trying to do is take some of those elements, tell a somewhat modern version but use the technology that didn”t exist in film ten years ago or twenty years ago or thirty years ago.
