John Carter of Mars Planned to Be a Trilogy at Disney/Pixar


Disney/Pixar reportedly has intention to develop "John Carter of Mars" as a trilogy that will be faithful to the Burroughs books.

The black-haired, steel-gray eyed immortal being will probably not only have just one chapter of his adventures brought to the big screen. ERBZine, the official Edgar Rice Burroughs tribute and weekly webzine site, has came up with delightful news claiming that Disney/Pixar, which appears to have secured the film rights to "John Carter of Mars", is intending to develop the movie as a trilogy.

The site reported that pre-production has got heated up on the flick, an adaptation of Burroughs's 11-volume Barsoom series. Pixar's honcho Jim Morris, director Andrew Stanton, and screenwriter Mark Andrews were said to have spent a morning exploring the massive Edgar Rice Burroughs archives in the ERB, Inc. offices on Ventura Blvd while also discussing the project with Burroughs representatives consisting of Danton Burroughs, Sandra Galfas, and Jim Sullos.

"All six members at the meeting expressed a deep commitment to the project, acknowledging that they had been inspired by Burroughs' creations from a very early age," ERBZine revealed. "This is evidenced in the excitement held for the John Carter property and the plans for a film trilogy faithful to the Burroughs books."

The first film is learned to eye a 2012 release and will start with a Civil War veteran whose retreat into a cave to avoid capture by Apache Indians takes an otherworldly turn as he gets transported via time portal to the planet of Barsoom and taken prisoner by 12-foot-tall green men.
