Timur Bekmambetov Creating Oz Mini Series For Syfy

Nightwatch and Wanted director Timur Bekmambetov is executive producing – and may direct – a new Oz -inspired mini-series for US Syfy.

Warriors Of Oz will follow modern day warriors on a journey through a post-apocalyptic future version of Oz taken over by an evil wizard. The Tin Man, the Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion are to be reimagined as the three warriors – Heartless, Brainless and Coward.

Syfy previously dabbled in Oz with Tin Man , starring Zooey Deschanel and Alan Cumming. [via Deadline ]
