    Andrew Stanton's 'John Carter of Mars'

    I had the great pleasure of speaking with Andrew Stanton last night at the AMPAS 1st-ever symposium spotlighting the three animated feature films vying for an Oscar this year. See

    He confirmed to me that he is indeed "two years into it" and really "loving and struggling through the process of wrestling a script into place." He also told me it would be a "huge 'Lord of the Rings' scale film."

    I'm curious to see it. I'm wondering about the costumes. Those harnesses sounded a bit skimpy.
    I want my cake back!

    Re: Andrew Stanton's 'John Carter of Mars'

    BD: How did WALL•E prepare you for the live-action John Carter of Mars?

    Andrew Stanton: Not as much as I had wanted it to. [laughs]. It's certainly made me very comfortable with working with very realized CG characters because half my cast are all CG. I got to dabble a little bit in live-action on WALL•E so that gave me a tiny taste of what I'm getting into for the live-action. But the biggest thing it did is it made me understand really what it's going to take to realize an entire world that's made up from fantasy.

    Andrew Stanton


    The writer-director (pictured, left, with producer John Lasseter) who won best animated feature for “ Wall-E,” is in preproduction on Pixar’s first live-action film, “John Carter of Mars.” The film, based on the books by Edgar Rice Burroughs, will have a live-action cast surrounded by CG creatures and backdrops. The pulp novels recount the adventures of a Civil War veteran who finds himself transported to the surface of Mars.

    “I’ve been hired to do some revisions to an already strong script by Andrew Stanton and Mark Andrews,” Chabon said. “I wrote my original screenplay The Martian Agent back in 1995 because I wished I could do [Edgar Rice] Burroughs’s Barsoom. So this is pretty much a dream come true for me.” - Michael Chabon

    "Wolverine"'s Taylor Kitsch and Lynn Collins have been announced as the leads in Andrew Stanton's big-screen adaptation of "John Carter of Mars". Stanton's first live-action feature follows his two Academy Award-winning efforts "Finding Nemo" and last year's "Wall-e." Filming begins in early 2010.

    Re: Andrew Stanton's 'John Carter of Mars'

    The Salt Lake Tribune reports that 'John Carter of Mars' will be in production in Utah from November through July 2010. Disney has filmed a number of projects in the state such as the 'High School Musical' series, drawn there by the state's film incentive program. 'Star Trek' also benefited from the program.

    What a thrill to overhear names like "Dejah" and "Tars" being mentioned with complete seriousness by the production staff.
