It's April 1st

And so James Cameron To Remake "The Wizard of Oz" in 3D is only as funny as you may find it...

A spokesman for Cameron, Guy Weiss, explained that the criteria for his next project included, "The opportunity to use a colorful palate," and, "an element of escapist fantasy." Several projects were considered, including a movie version of the 70's cartoon Thundarr the Barbarian, the life story of Paris Hilton, and a series of films based on all of Piers Anthony's Xanth novels. However, the famed producer finally settled on a remake of "The Wizard of Oz."

Weiss explained, "Wizard of Oz has a gorgeous use of colors. The Yellow Brick Road, the Emerald City, the Ruby Slippers -- man, they'll all look stunning when they fly off an IMAX screen. Additionally, it's a property that has attracted us some name brand stars. Megan Fox has already signed on as Dorothy, and we're talking to Robin Williams to play the Scarecrow. It's probable that Sean Connery will play Toto, since he's a Scottie dog. We're also casting Jerry Seinfeld as the Tin Man and Danny DeVito as the Cowardly Lion. And America Ferrara will be the Wicked Witch of the West."
