Taylor Kitsch and Lynn Collins, both previously seen in summer opener/complete disaster Wolverine, are set to star in LONG gestating adaptation of Edgar Rice Burrough’s famous book series, John Carter Of Mars. Disney is prepping the film as it’s next big franchise ala Pirates Of The Caribbean.

The film is being directed by Andrew Stanton, of Finding Nemo and Wall-E fame. Stanton is the second Pixar director to make the leap to film, alongside Brad Bird who’s currently prepping his San Francisco earthquake film 1906. John Carter Of Mars centers on a civil war who veteran finds himself mysteriously transported to Mars, where his involvement with warring races of the dying planet force him to rediscover his humanity. The screenplay was written by Andrew Stanton and Mark Andrews with some revisions from Michael Chabon (Spider-Man 2).
