The Witches of Oz

This is a project that Leigh Scott mentioned a while back on the old Retromedia board, and it sounds great:

"A star-studded cast including Billy Boyd (Lord of the Rings), Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future), Sean Astin(Lord of the Rings) and Mia Sara (Legend) bring the much-loved magic of Oz into a modern day setting and the results are positively spellbinding.

"Dorothy Gale is a small-time author from Kansas who writes children's stories about Oz, a fantasy land that lies somewhere over the rainbow. When a New York agency offers to represent her books, Dorothy heads to the Big Apple and finds things are not what they seem... Although Dorothy has always believed that Oz was a fictional place created by her eccentric grandfather, strange happenings in New York soon prove that it's very real indeed! The inhabitants of Oz have come to our world to seek Dorothy's help in defeating the Wicked Witch of the West and her plans for global domination."

Scott previously directed a bunch of Asylum pictures including Transmorphers, Dragon and Pirates of Treasure Island. The Witches of Oz also features Jeffrey Combs and Lance HenriksenThe UK DVD is out on 8th August and runs a whopping four hours!
