'JOHN CARTER' TO CONTINUE
AS FANTASY MOVIE FRANCHISE WITHOUT DISNEY
Now, if you ask me, Disney's space opera movie JOHN CARTER was a solid film, visually stunning, with outstanding cast (Samantha Morton, Willem Dafoe, Thomas Haden Church, Mark Strong, Ciarán Hinds, Dominic West, James Purefoy), great lead stars (Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins), brilliant world building and sweeping story, but the lack of marketing lead to its fall at the US boxoffice, although it did well worldwide. The latest update is that Disney has just lost rights on Edgar Rice Burroughs' hero from Mars and now Edgar Rice Burrough's Inc., which controls numerous trademarks and the rights to all literary works of the author, is seeking a new studio in order to continue shooting movies about the legendary hero who finds himself amidst the warring alien fractions over at Mars where he also falls in love with Deja Thoris, the gorgeous princess!
