Drew Puts on the Ruby Slippers

22 October 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hollywood wild child Drew Barrymore is set to play Dorothy Gale - in the sequel to The Wizard Of Oz. The Charlie's Angels beauty will bring the character, most famously played by Judy Garland, to maturity and give adults a reason to join their kids at the cinema. The new film will be called Surrender Dorothy and is set to help the actress' career continue to flourish. A source says, "They are clearly hoping to cash in on the fact that every child loves The Wizard of Oz, but Drew will give it a bit of edge and adult appeal too." »

'Star' Turns for Will Smith and J.Lo?

1 October 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Will Smith and Jennifer Lopez are being lined up to take lead roles in a remake of classic film A Star Is Born. Director Joel Schumacher is currently courting studio backing for the project, and has the two major names lined up awaiting the greenlight. He told music TV channel MTV, "Who knows if the movie will go, but it seems to be a desire of the studio to do it. And now let's see if all of the ducks are in order." Smith has been interested in the project for a number of years and has recently spoken of J.Lo's eagerness to jump aboard. He said, "Jennifer loves the concept. What I like about Jennifer is that you could go Latin. The music and the environment could be the Latin world, which would be different from all of the other versions." And veteran filmmaker Schumacher - the man behind The Lost Boys and Batman And Robin, among many others - is a big fan of Smith. He says, "I know Will better than I know Jennifer. I did a public service announcement for education with Jennifer and she was breathtakingly beautiful and charming. Will I know better and we've talked about working together. And he's just a consummate gentleman and just a lovely human being." A Star Is Born has been made four times, most famously in 1954 with James Mason and Judy Garland. »

Liz's Shoe Problem At Minnelli Wedding

19 March 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Elizabeth Taylor held up actress and singer Liza Minnelli's wedding this weekend - after she forgot her shoes. Taylor, who was acting as Maid Of Honor at Liza's New York nuptials with David Gest, arrived at the scheduled ceremony time - 5pm - without make-up and wearing slippers, according to guest Ruth Leon. Leon, whose husband Sheridan Morley was friends with Minnelli's screen icon mother Judy Garland, reveals, "It was Liz who was late. She didn't turn up until 5pm, and without make-up and in her bedroom slippers. "Having forgot her shoes, most of the delay was in sending back to the hotel for them. Actor Robert Wagner was, from all accounts, furious, especially as the previous night at the rehearsal, she had sent word she wanted to go on stage first, thus making her the center of attention throughout the procession. "he idea was vetoed by the other maid, Marisa Berenson." The ceremony, at Marble Collegiate Church on Fifth Avenue, eventually went ahead at 6pm without too many hitches, even though Taylor proceeded to struggle with the wedding rings, necessitating Best Man Michael Jackson's helpful intervention. »
