Any Bets on Whether This Will Get off the Ground?

Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins blast off to 'Mars': "Taylor Kitsch and Lynn Collins will star in 'John Carter of Mars,' the adaptation of the Edgar Rice Burroughs book series that Andrew Stanton is directing for Disney.

The movie is a big step for Stanton -- who as one of Pixar's top creators directed the company's animated films 'Finding Nemo' and 'WALL-E' but will now helm his first live-action feature -- and Disney, which hopes the big-budget production will launch a franchise on the scale of 'Pirates of the Caribbean.'"

Actually yes supposedly they have been in preproduction for awhile and will be filming in Utah soon enough.

I won't hold my breath. They've been threatening to make this one for how many years now?

Perhaps it's time to read this one again, I think it's been...35 or 40 years.

I hope they're watching a lot of MTV videos so they can screw up all the actions scenes.

I'm not too impressed with this casting. Maybe it's appropriate that "kitch" means "trash" in German.
