Michael Chabon To Do Script Revisions On 'John Carter Of Mars'

Novelist Michael Chabon revealed he has been hired to make revisions on Pixar's John Carter Of Mars script.

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

Chabon who worked on the script for Spider-Man 2 and has had his own novels Wonder Boys and The Mysteries Of Pittsburgh both adapted into films stated that his love for pulp writer Edgar Rice Burroughs's original A Princess Of Mars stories were an early inspiration for him.

“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.”
