The Witches of Oz - starring Billy Boyd and Sean Astin Can't Post

A fantasy movie based on the Wizard of Oz
Official website and making-of
http://www.followtheyellowbrickroad.com/EXCLUSIVECONTENT.html
Made by a director known for his low-low-budget b-movies. Imagine my surprise when I saw Billy Boyd in that making-of piece. So I look at the cast list and lo and behold, Sean Astin is in it, and also Christopher Lloyd, Lance Henriksen, Mia Sara of Legend fame, and Jeffrey Combs (The Frighteners).
My movie-radar is screaming Awesome! at the moment!

There is another Oz remake coming out soon... [In reply to] Can't Post

next year, I think. I hope this one doesn't get lost in the same way one of the Truman Capote movies got lost the same year Capote came out, or in a battle, like The Prestige and The Ilusionist did.

I don't think you can get much info, re: cast, etc. without being a paid member of imdb, which I am not.
