Wall-E Director/Writer Andrew Stanton Talks John Carter recently had an interview with Andrew Stanton on the making of Wall -E but he also talked little about his work on the eagerly anticipated John Carter Of Mars.
Look at you guys. It's very telling who does their research on the internet and who doesn't. That is my next project. I'm in the middle of writing it right now with Mark Andrews, who was the head of story on "Ratatouille" and "Incredibles."I always like to say I'm a little bit country and he's a little bit rock and roll and together we sort of cover the bases of what we feel that story should be. We both grew up loving that series of books and can't believe to this day that we've managed to get it in our laps, because it was almost going to be made by so many people and we're hoping we're not just one of many in another line of this stuff. So we're spending this whole year trying to make sure that the story is as worthy as it can be. It's the one thing that I've learned working at Pixar is regardless of the sexiness of who you might cast or
how it might be done or all this stuff, just don't be distracted by that and write the greatest story you can write, because you're only going to get more distracted as you go. So we haven't even thought about how we're going to execute it. We're just going to devote this year to writing and improving as best we can for the screen.
