Selena Gomez & Justin Bieber Reportedly Want To Remake The Wizard of Oz!” exclaims HollywoodLife without bothering to fact-check whether or not it’s true.

The site goes on to gush, “We’re totally on board!”

HollywoodLife quotes a supposed “source” who says, “Selena has loved the Wizard of Oz since she was a kid and she’s still obsessed with it.”

“Her dream role would be Dorothy in a remake but she’d settle for a Munchkin just to be in it,” continues the site, adding, “She’s got Justin hooked on the movie… [and] thinks they may both be contenders for a role.”

HollywoodLife argues that “with her Disney show Wizards of Waverly Place coming to an end, it seems it would be simple for Selena, 18, to go from one wizard to another.”

Despite the blog’s ridiculous logic, there’s nothing to this story whatsoever.

A source close to Gomez tells Gossip Cop it’s “not true” that she’s trying to recruit Bieber for a remake of the classic film.

HollywoodLife… if they only had a brain.
