The man who brought us the family friendly movies Wall-E and Finding Nemo is at it again with John Carter of Mars. Production is under way in London for Andrew Stanton’s latest film, which is set to come out in 2012. Walt Disney has already started the marketing process, and have just launched its official Facebook page.
In the newly released synopsis for John Carter, it says the film “brings the captivating hero to the big screen in a stunning adventure epic.” If it’s anything like Stanton’s previous work, with his eye for detail and perfection, this is going to be just that, epic. Carter is described as a Sci-fi/Adventure, and chronicles the journey of a Civil-War veteran (Taylor Kitsch), who finds himself battling a new and mysterious war amidst a host of strange Martian inhabitants.
From its description, it sounds completely different from what Stanton has done over the years, so this film could mark some growth in the director’s career. He’s had a positive record with audiences in the past and with his history of hits, it’s unlikely that he’ll disappoint.
