'Oz, The Great and Powerful' director Sam Raimi might not have any interest in directing a sequel to the massively successful 'Wizard of Oz' takeoff, but still maintains his pick of the litter with regard to future projects. it might surprise you then to learn, that the director will next head to TV to helm FOX's upcoming Greg Kinnear-starring adaptation of UK drama 'Rake'! Find out about Raimi's latest project inside!
But didn't they...hmm. It's of interest to note that while nowhere near the storied history of the famous Kennedy family itself, historical miniseries 'The Kennedys' went through quite a bit of controversy in its own right just to make it to air the first time around. Dumped by The History Channel and largely eschewed by every other network, the Greg Kinnear/Katie Holmes political dramatization eventually landed on ReelzChannel to mixed reviews, but is a sequel now in the works?
If there's one thing mainstream TV definitely doesn't have enough of, it's charming roguish male protagonists who manage to do their jobs incredibly despite their crippling personal flaws. Enter the latest likable rogue into the mix, Greg Kinnear! Fox and the one-time 'Stuck On You' actor will set their sights on adapting Australian comedy/drama 'Rake,' chronicling an acerbic lawyer, as opposed to a doctor a la 'House.' But will it rake in any big guest stars?
