'Watchman' Director Nicole Kassell to Helm New 'Wizard of Oz' Film from New Line Cinema

New Line Cinema is in the process of bringing fans a new feature-film adaptation of L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. According to a recent article by Deadline, Watchman director Nicole Kassell is on board to helm the project.

Kassell comment on his involvement with the project, which promises to be a fresh take on the material:

I am incredibly honored to join Temple Hill and New Line in bringing this beloved classic to the screen,” Kassell said. “While the 1939 musical is part of my DNA, I am exhilarated and humbled by the responsibility of re-imagining such a legendary tale. The opportunity to examine the original themes — the quest for courage, love, wisdom and home — feels more timely and urgent than ever. These are profoundly iconic shoes to fill, and I am eager to dance alongside these heroes of my childhood as we pave a newly minted yellow brick road.
