More John Carter movies could be in the works


Never say never

John Carter was one of the biggest cinematic flops in recent history and heads rolled at Disney after it floundered out of the start gate. It was too bad because it was actually an entertaining piece of science fiction and had some promise as a franchise. However, with Disney in control it wasn't going to happen. Thankfully, Disney has let the rights lapse and now Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., the new rights holders, are looking to make more movies. 

James Sullos, President of Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc., in a press release said, "We will be seeking a new partner to help develop new adventures on film as chronicled in the eleven Mars novels Burroughs wrote. This adventure never stops ... we hope to have JOHN CARTER OF MARS become another major franchise to entertain world-wide audiences of all ages.”
