Lynn Collins & Taylor Kitsch Cast In Andrew Stanton’s ‘John Carter Of Mars’
  |  @   |  

It began with a Tweet.

Coming Soon noticed a little message on Twitter recently from actress Lynn Collins which simply read “celebrating john carter of mars!!!!!!!” and nothing more. Naturally this would lead you to believe that she had landed a role in the movie version of John Carter of Mars which is being directed by Pixar man Andrew Stanton, but it’s also something to be skeptical about.

Proving that not everything we hear/see on the Internet is a lie, it’s now being officially confirmed that Lynn Collins has indeed been cast in John Carter of Mars, as well as her X-Men Origins: Wolverine co-star Taylor Kitsch. Kitsch, who is now best known for his work as Gambit in Wolverine, will be playing the man himself, John Carter. Collins — who played Silver Fox in Wolverine and also appeared in the first season of True Blood — will be playing Dejah Thoris, who is the heir to the throne of Mars’ Helium Kingdom.

The movie will follow Carter, a Civil War veteran who is somehow transported to the red planet, Mars. When there, he finds himself in the middle of a massive battle between different races on a planet that is dying. The character of John Carter was created by Edgar Rice Burroughs almost a century ago and has appeared in various forms including mostly novels, as well as some comic strips.

Director Andrew Stanton is one of the master filmmakers from Pixar Animations. His best work was as director of Finding Nemo and Wall-E, but this will be the first attempt at a live-action feature film.

John Carter of Mars is looking to begin filming in Utah this November.
