Stanton confirms Pixar’s ‘John Carter’ Andrew Stanton is writing the script for the upcoming ‘John Carter Of Mars’ film. Stanton, a Pixar veteran who directed the studio’s Finding Nemo and the upcoming WALL-E, confirmed to reporters that he is writing an adaptation of the Edgar Rice Burroughs science fiction book. Published in novel form in 1917, A Princess Of Mars focused on Civil War veteran John Carter who finds himself transported to Mars. The book is regarded as a 20th century pulp classic. It is unclear whether ‘John Carter Of Mars’ will be an entirely CGI film in line with Pixar’s previous movies, or a mixture of animation and live-action footage. WALL-E will be released in Ireland July 18th.
