Netflix Buy Rights To Merge Dorothy Of Oz With Alice In Wonderland
By Luke Miller,
Two of the most mysterious fictional characters will be joining forces in what is set to be one of the most anticipated Netflix releases.
Netflix have won a hotly contested bidding war and have the rights for a movie in which Dorothy Gale from “The Wizard Of Oz” and Alice from “Alice In Wonderland” are sent to a home for ‘troubled’ youths.
The project has been given to producer Bryan Unkeless from Clubhouse Pictures. Clubhouse Pictures are responsible for academy award winning 2017 movie I, Tonya. Dorothy & Alice is being written by Justin Merz, and will delve into the mystical friendship of these two iconic literature figures.
Deadline reports: Haunted by nightmares of Oz’s impending destruction, Dorothy Gale finds herself in a home for others like her with troubling, vivid dreams. While she is there, she meets a mysterious girl, Alice – who involves her in a perilous quest to not only save the worlds of imagination — those which we come to realize are real and not just dreams — but the world as we know it.
The movie is still in the early stages and currently there is no release date. But it will be interesting to see who will play Dorothy & Alice.
