Will 'Wizard of Oz' be next for Robert Zemeckis?

"Back to the Future" director Robert Zemeckis may be going over the rainbow for his latest project: a remake of the classic "The Wizard of Oz."

Deadline.com reports that Warner Bros. wants Zemeckis to helm a live-action feature based on the original script for the 1939 Technicolor fantasy starring Judy Garland as Dorothy. That script actually had 19 writers, including actor Bert Lahr, who played the Cowardly Lion.

Oz seems to be a hot topic in Hollywood lately. "Glee" star Lea Michele is headlining "Dorothy of Oz," an animated 3-D film also starring Kristin Chenowith, Kelsey Grammer, Martin Short and Hugh Dancy due out in 2012.

Meanwhile, director Sam Raimi is set to take on Disney's "Oz: The Great and Powerful," a 3-D tale about the Wizard of Oz before he earned his esteemed title, a role Robert Downey Jr. is in talks to portray.

No cast has yet been announced for the Zemeckis' film. Who would you like to see in the roles of Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, and, of course, the Wicked Witch?

Taking chances on 'Parenthood'

Members of the Braverman clan took some personal chances on last night’s episode, and while some worked, others definitely didn’t.

Max wasn’t invited to a friend’s birthday party, and while he didn’t really notice, Kristina seemed hurt. She confronted the mom, Andi, about it at school, and it turned out the girl didn’t want to invite Max and another kid.

Andi said she thought for one day her daughter should have what she wanted, and that Kristina should understand since she’s also the mother of a child with Asperger’s. You’d think Kristina would leave it alone – I mean, it’s just one birthday party. But she approached the girl about it in class.

Ke$ha reveals the deal with the dollar sign on Funny or Die

Suddenly that dollar sign in Ke$ha's name makes sense. In a hilarious new video for Funny or Die, the pop star reveals that a typo was behind her moneyed moniker.

"I used to be Kesha with an S, instead of a dollar sign, and then one year I had my birthday party at Shakey's Pizza," the misty-eyed "Tik Tok" singer explains in the tongue-in-cheek video. "On the sign - the big sign where they write 'Happy Birthday' - they replaced the S with a dollar sign."

A Shakey's employee then confirms the traumatic incident. "Yeah, I remember that day," he recalls. "We had a special going on sausage, salami, and sun-dried tomatoes pizza so we were just all out of S's."
