Stanton Helms John Carter Film

Andrew Stanton (“WALL·E,” “Finding Nemo,” “A Bug’s Life”) has revealed to The Pixar Blog that his next project looks to be the “John Carter of Mars” adaptation.

Based on Edgar Rice Burroughs novel series, the film follows an American civil war hero who gets transported to Mars and ends up fighting another civil war – this time between alien species of different colours.

Stanton confirms that he’s currently writing the script for the project, but it hasn’t been greenlit yet and wasn’t on the studio’s previously announced schedule which ran to the end of 2012.
