Re: [barsoom] Hello
- Kaor ! good to meet ya ! Okay, the only reason I EVER go to " ain't it
cool" .com is for news on this project. And the feedback section -
don't get me going - ANYWAYS - here's the last news on the film -
Mark Protosevich to write JOHN CARTER OF MARS Script!!!
Hey folks, Harry here. Back quite some time ago there was a young scruff
of a writer that was taking film geeks by storm with his masterful
script for I AM LEGEND. There was much salivation as Ridley Scott came
aboard to direct Arnie in the best script Arnie had worked on since the
original CONAN THE BARBARIAN and the best script that Ridley Scott had
had since BLADE RUNNER. Weirdness ensued and Ridley jettisoned, Arnie
remain attached, the project went into Limbo. It was much energy and
potential, but what became of it? Well right now, it is very much alive
with Michael Bay and Will Smith. Ok, so it is in I.C.U., but what about
Well Mark Protosevich has continued to work on cool projects. He was one
of the writers on FREDDY VS JASON, STRANGER IN A STRANGE LAND and GHOST
RIDERS IN THE SKY. He's turned in a draft of the reimagining of BRIDE OF
FRANKENSTEIN at Universal, and it after he finishes the draft of that,
that he's pecking away at right now... He begins to right his epic...
JOHN CARTER OF MARS!
This is the project in the post LORD OF THE RINGS world to get erect
for. This is a project that if done right, well it could just kick in
teeth and take names. It would be grand. So step one has begun on this
project, a really great and loving writer that gives a shit, is working
on it. Next, we'll have to see what happens in the director's chair...
then of course... who is John Carter? Hugh Jackman? Cole Hauser? Jason
Schwartzman? What do you think?
