The Wiz by Charlie Smalls and William F. Brown

The Wiz is a retelling of L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in the context of African American culture. It ran on Broadway from January 5, 1975 to January 28, 1979. A film version was made in 1978, starring Diana Ross and Michael Jackson, among others. If a film version that was closer to the Broadway show was made now, who would you cast?
