R&B singer/Moesha actress Brandy is a signature away from starring as Dorothy in Fox's hip-hop TV remake of The Wizard of Oz, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The project tentatively titled The O.Z. will also star Queen Latifah (Glenda the Good Witch), Busta Rhymes (the Cowardly Lion), Little Richard (the Wizard), Ginuwine (the Scarecrow) and R&B group IMX (the flying monkeys). In the update, Dorothy is a hip-hop musical producer based in Los Angeles who, following an earthquake, finds herself (and Toto, natch) in a place called Big O.Z.
