John CarterCelebrated author of such books as The Mysteries of Pittsburgh, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, and The Yiddish Policemen’s Union, Michael Chabon has been hired to help polish up the script for Andrew Stanton‘s John Carter of Mars movie.

The news had been hinted at recently in a Deadline Hollywood report on Chabon’s change of agents, where it listing his partially-used draft of Spider-Man 2 and John Carter as the writer’s works.

Chabon offered up the confirmation via The Amazing Website of Kavalier & Clay:

I’ve been hired to do some revisions to an already strong script by Andrew Stanton and Mark Andrews. 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.

John Carter of Mars will take the classic science fiction hero and create a new story around him. The character was created by Edgar Rice Burroughs and first used in 1912’s Under the Moons of Mars and has been used in many different ways and has seen many different adventures since then. The movie is expected to be a live-action/CG hybrid movie, and fittingly, it’s hoping to be released some time in 2012 — 100 years after the character was first seen.
