    Drew Barrymore is headed behind the camera yet again. The actress, who directed last year's roller derby chick flick Whip It! in what was her first foray behind the camera, is working on her next project. PerezHilton.com is reporting that Barrymore will direct Surrender Dorothy, which is a sequel to the classic Wizard of Oz. In this film, Dorothy's great-great granddaughter will be the lead character who has to learn how to control the power of the ruby red slippers and to protect Oz and the world from the evils of the Wicked Witch of the West. That's a tall order, both plot-wise and directorially, but we think Barrymore is up for the task. She will also star in the film.

    What is your favorite classic film from the Golden Age of Hollywood? Favorite Barrymore film?
