The property’s been bouncing around Hollywood for quite some time, but "John Carter of Mars" has finally settled at Pixar / Disney. Now the question is: Will it be live action or animated?
The adaptation of the Edgar Rice Burroughs adventures will be delivered by the very busy writing team of Hawk Ostby and Mark Fergus. The flick is still a pretty long way off, but IESB was able to snag one extra piece of information: Fan favorite filmmaker Brad Bird ("The Iron Giant," "The Incredibles," "Ratatouille") will NOT be involved on "John Carter." (Bird will be working on the live-action "1906," a crime drama set against the backdrop of the 1906 SF earthquake.) Oh well. It’ll still rock, I bet.
