Disney has finally completed their roster for the upcoming film "John Carter of Mars." Andrew Stanton will be at the helm, directing the film and Carter will be played by Taylor Kitsch, who played the role of Gambit in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which we previously reported on. Joining Kitsch will be English actors Samantha Morton, Dominic West and Polly Walker. Morton will be playing Sola, Willem Dafoe's daughter; West will be Sab Than, the Prince of the Zodangans, and Walker will be playing the role of Sarkoja.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the film's screenplay is complete and the film will be produced by Mark Andrews, Jim Morris, and Colin Wilson. It will be interesting to see how closely related film will be to the original story that was written by Edgar Rice Burroughs in 1912. What do you think? I am personally not a big fan Kitsch, and I am unsure how I feel about the film. Are you looking forward to it? Did you read the novel? Have you read the comic book adaptation of the story?
