If you are like me and have enjoyed growing up with ERB and HG Wells and reading about the adventures of John Carter on Barsoom and his beautiful bride Dejah Thoris then you will be excited to know that they are working on a movie based on the book, and no this one does not have Tracy Lords and a bunch of no-name actors. (Content below including the actors images taken from IMDB without permission but linked here anyway)
Check out Lynn Collins playing Dejah, Taylor Kitsch as John Carter and Willem as Tars Tarakas.
Oh please let them do a good job with this movie. It is one of my childhood favorites! I am in the process of reading The Chessmen of Mars right now and recently finished Thuvia, Maid of Mars. All of this is of course in prep-work for my Martian Supplement for WTNW- Conflict on Mars.
I'd like to hear from you, my readers. What are your favorite ERB novels? Are you as excited about this release as I am?
Edit: The movie is in post production!
