Johnson Goes Stop Motion For “Oz Wars”

“Corpse Bride” co-director Mike Johnson has been set to helm the CG/stop-motion action-adventure feature “Oz Wars” for Vanguard Films says Variety.

Doing a contemporary spin on the Oz narrative, the story follows Dorothy caught up in a whirlwind of “warrior witches, black magic, martial arts and monsters”.

Rob Moreland and Athena Gam penned the script. New software will allow the film to be produced for a far lower budget than stop-motion features have been produced for in the past.
