Dayton, OH, September 23, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- To coincide with the 70th anniversary of the American film classic "The Wizard of Oz" starring Judy Garland, Ohio-based screenwriter David Wagner has written a new script, "King of the Winged Monkeys," about the sinister flying apes of Oz.
“My script is Not a sequel to 'The Wizard of Oz,'” says Wagner. “'King of the Winged Monkeys' is an original screenplay that uses the flying monkeys from L. Frank Baum’s Oz books in a new story, about a Kansas boy who finds a mysterious relic that compels the flying monkeys to obey commands.”
Many people remember being frightened as children by the winged monkeys, so will the new movie be too scary for kids? “My story is a little dark in places, but that’s what makes it fun, like a roller coaster ride. A roller coaster isn’t fun unless it’s a little scary.”

David Wagner is a screenwriter who has written over a dozen screenplays, including adaptations of "Villette," by Charlotte Bronte, and "The Chimes," by Charles Dickens.
