    Andrew Stanton confirms John Carter of Mars

    Andrew Stanton personally confirmed for me and others attending today's roundtable discussion in Toronto that he is currently writing the film version of Edgar Rice Burroughs' John Carter of Mars for Pixar.

    The disclosure came at the end of the short, but extremely enjoyable, discussion (excerpts of which will be published here soon), when a writer from asked about Stanton's next project, to which Stanton mentioned (not too loudly) 'John Carter of Mars'.

    Doubting what I'm hearing, I interject, "What is that?" "John Carter of Mars, Stanton replies." "You're confirming John Carter? Are you serious?" At this point, I turn my tape recorder back on, "...say that on tape!", I tell him. Stanton: "I am writing John Carter of Mars right now." "Oh man, you just doubled my page views!", I say. Everybody laughs.

    (I'm currently looking for a way to transfer the poor-quality audio from the microcassette tape into my computer, for uploading here.)

    No details on the film just yet, but somehow the fact that Stanton is writing has quelled most of my doubts about the till-now rumoured project.

    Oh now this is interesting! This project has been in the works for how many years now? 10? 15?

    Going with Pixar for this is actually not a bad idea at all. As long as Pixar doesn't kiddify it up, it should be a good move. Please, Pixar, no big cartoony eyes for this one!

    Hmm, that should be fun. I wonder how revealing they'll make the harnesses?
    I want my cake back!
