Oz the Great and Powerful was a huge hit earlier this year and now producer Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) wants to bring Oz to the Syfy channel with the mini-series Warriors of Oz, based on his original idea in which “a warrior from present day Earth is transported to a post-apocalyptic future Oz where he must team up with three other warriors: Heartless, Brainless, and Coward, in order to defeat the evil Wizard who has enslaved the land.” Deadline also reports that Bekmambetov will executive produce the mini-series and may direct; the search is on for a writer. Fans of L. Frank Baum’s source material may remember the mini-series Tin Man that debuted in 2007, but Bekmambetov will certainly bring his own unique style to the project.
