Sam Raimi had a few decisions to make this year, thanks to a Spider-Man movie franchise reboot that raised questions about whether or not his “WarCraft” movie would become his new priority. It looks like Disney’s “Oz: The Great and Powerful” won out in the end, however, meaning “WarCraft” won’t be getting his full attention in the new year.
Raimi committed to doing “Oz” next and starting production sometime in 2011, according to a Deadline report. Oddly enough, Raimi hooked up with the new movie after Guillermo del Toro declined to direct it. Meanwhile, del Toro has been looking for new video game projects to work on rather than leaving old ones behind.
