The actor who plays Sandman in 'Spider-Man 3' could be joining Taylor Kitsch and Lynn Collins in the cast ensemble of 'John Carter of Mars'.

While the confirmation on the joining of Taylor Kitsch and Lynn Collins for "John Carter of Mars" is still fresh in mind, another casting report is coming out and it involves Thomas Haden Church. During a recent chat with Jeffrey Lyons on "Reel Talk" for "Imagine That", the Sandman of "Spider-Man 3" hinted on the potential chance he is going to be in the sci-fi fantasy.

Asked about his future movie project, Hayden Church gushed that he might star in the Andrew Stanton-directed movie. "I'm probably going to do a huge science fiction drama at Disney called John Carter Of Mars and that's a very dramatic role," so the 48-year-old claimed. It is still unclear what character he eyes to play, but it should be noted that the actor is yet to be officially cast.

Days earlier, words were coming out that "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" co-stars, Taylor Kitsch and Lynn Collins, are going to share the same screen once again through this Disney movie project. Kitsch has been cast as the titular character, John Carter of Mars, while Collins will take on the role of Dejah Thoris, the heir to the throne of Mars' Helium kingdom.

Targeted to start production early 2010, "John Carter of Mars" is based on the Edgar Rice Burroughs classic series of fantasy/sci-fi novels. It will center its story around John Carter, a damaged Civil War veteran who finds himself mysteriously transported to Mars where his involvements with warring raced of the dying planet force him to rediscover his humanity. The script was penned by Andrew Stanton and Mark Andrews with a polish by Michael Chabon.
