POP weirdo Lady GaGa is set to make her film de­but in a re­make of the Wiz­ard of Oz.

Hol­ly­wood in­sid­ers say Moulin Rouge di­rec­tor Baz Luhrmann is se­cretly putting to­gether a con­tro­ver­sial modern ver­sion of the 1939 hit.

And they say the Poker Face singer ( be­low) is top of his list for the role of Wicked Witch of the West.

Also in line for top parts are Gary Old­man as The Tin­man, Kylie Minogue as the Good Witch of the North and Steve Buscemi as the Cow­ardly Lion.

The movie mole said; “This is all very hush-hush but it looks like it could well be a goer.

“The orig­i­nal film was a para­ble of the 1930s de­pres­sion so it makes per­fect sense to recre­ate that for the modern de­pres­sion we’re go­ing through.

“I un­der­stand if Baz is on board, the first name he wants is Lady GaGa.

“She's such a per­former in her stage act he reck­ons she’ll be a nat­u­ral.”
