Pixar confirmed to be developing John Carter of Mars

Every so often as a blogger you get a scoop that is really cool. That just happened to Mike over at The Pixar Blog. He as at a group interview with WALL-E director Andrew Stanton when Stanton revealed what his next project would be.

The disclosure came at the end of the short, but extremely enjoyable, discussion (excerpts of which will be published here soon), when a writer from Suite101.com asked about Stanton’s next project, to which Stanton mentioned (not too loudly) ‘John Carter of Mars’.

Doubting what I’m hearing, I interject, “What is that?” “John Carter of Mars, Stanton replies.” “You’re confirming John Carter? Are you serious?” At this point, I turn my tape recorder back on, “…say that on tape!”, I tell him. Stanton: “I am writing John Carter of Mars right now.” “Oh man, you just doubled my page views!”, I say. Everybody laughs.

I hope you enjoy the extra hits Mike. Great scoop! How come I don’t get invited to those sort of things. (Read)
