Are they actually afraid of remaking it?peaking to the LA Times, producer Joe Roth has pledged that the planned sequel to Oz won’t feature Dorothy.

Paramount Moving Forward with HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS Sequel | Collider
From the 'welllllll whatdoya know' department.Paramount Pictures is now officially developing a sequel to this past Januaryís R-rated genre pic Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters. Youíd be forgiven for being a bit surprised at the news, as the film was a flop domestically with a total gross of just $54.6 million. However, overseas the film has now taken in over $150 million. Against a purported budget of $50 million, the picís worldwide gross of $205 million is apparently enough to justify moving forward with the follow-up, as Deadline reports that a sequel is now officially in development...
Tommy Wirkola wrote and directed the first film, but itís unknown if heíll be returning for the sequel. Stars Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton are presumably under contract to reprise their roles, but Paramount could also go another route (direct to DVD/VOD, new cast, etc.). At this point the sequel is only ďin development,Ē so thereís no guarantee that itíll actually come to fruition. I never saw the first film so I canít speak to whether a follow-up is warranted or not, but I canít envision Renner being too happy about coming back to make a sequel to a movie that domestic audiences rejected outright.
Stellan Skarsgard Boards Disney’s Live-Action ‘Cinderella’ | /Film
Nice cast...but these re-tellings have got to start paying off or the genre is gonna price itself out. Hansel & Gretel not so good, the Snow White revisions were one bad/one good(at least $$$ wise)...common properties be damned these movies cost money. Maleficent should have folks worried...that started filming a year ago, and nobody is talking about it.
Didn't they already make a live Jungle Book film already with that dude who played Bruce Lee or am I having an acid flashback?
