In the never-ending JOHN CARTER OF MARS watch, some very thrilling news: novelist Michael Chabon has been brought in to work on the script. The long-gestating project landed at Pixar after kicking around Hollywood for a few decades, and Andrew “FINDING NEMO” Stanton has been working on a script for a while. Chabon, who in addition to having the crazy eyes, also edited a Pulp issue of McSweeney’s told a website:
“I’ve been hired to do some revisions to an already strong script by Andrew Stanton and Mark Andrews,” Chabon said. “I wrote my original screenplay The Martian Agent back in 1995 because I wished I could do [Edgar Rice] Burroughs’s Barsoom. So this is pretty much a dream come true for me.”
Chabon also wrote a draft of the script for SPIDER-MAN 2. We’re pretty confident that if anyone understands Woola, he does.
