Disney loses John Carter rights, new studio sought to continue the franchise

23 October 2014 1:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Considering the studio took a $200 million loss on its first foray to Barsoom, it will come as little surprise to hear that Disney has given up on the movie, television and merchandise rights to John Carter, with the property now reverting back to Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. However, this may be good news for fans hoping to see more of Burroughs’ Martian adventures on the big screen, as the company is now seeking a new studio to continue the series.

John Carter of Mars was the creative stimulus behind such movie classics as Superman, Star Wars and Avatar,” said James Sullos, President. “Edgar Rice Burroughs was the Master of Adventure and his literary works continue to enjoy a world-wide following. 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. Along with a »

Disney loses 'John Carter' rights: What's next for the franchise?

22 October 2014 2:03 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

John Carter was not the hit Disney hoped for at the box office. The studio reportedly lost $200 million on the film, expecting it to launch a blockbuster franchise but instead delivering a Taylor Kitsch-fronted flop. There are some admittedly interesting ideas and imagery in the film, but there's no denying its critical and commercial failure. Still, some left a candle burning in the hopes that the John Carter of Mars franchise was not dead. And now it seems the works of Edgar Rice Burroughs may live on—just not at Disney. Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. announced on Tuesday, Oct. »

Disney Loses The Rights To John Carter

22 October 2014 6:40 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In recent years, one of the most mis-managed attempts at launching a franchise was Disney’s John Carter. No one can quite agree on what went wrong, though casting, script, and poor marketing probably all share at least part of the blame. Suffice it to say that John Carter did not launch a franchise and star Taylor Kitsch remains a not-quite-household name. But, Edgar Rice Burroughs’ novel series might get another chance at the big screen, though not with Disney, as the company has just lost the rights to the character.

The rights to John Carter were recently regained by Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc., the publishing company created by Burroughs in 1923. While some of Burroughs’ works have passed into the public domain, the two most famous characters – Tarzan and now John Carter – remain under their control. The company also intends to do right by their founder’s work, announcing that »

"John Carter" May Return To Mars?

21 October 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Two years after Disney's failed film adaptation of the first Edgar Rice Burrogh's "John Carter of Mars" hit cinemas, the film and TV rights to the property have reverted back to the late author's estate.

In a statement released by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., the company confirmed the reverstion and that they are "seeking a new studio to continue this seminal Sci-Fi adventure".

The 2012 film starred Taylor Kitsch as a former military captain inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes embroiled in a civil war. Critical reviews were mixed, the marketing campaign has been written about as one of the most disastrous in recent history, and domestic box-office was woeful with just $73 million.

Internationally it fared better with a further $211 million, but that still wasn't close to covering the film's enormous $250 million budget. As a result, Disney took a major write down on the film with the perceived failure leading »

Disney Loses 'John Carter' Rights; Burroughs Inc. Plans New Movie

21 October 2014 12:24 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. announces that the movie, television and merchandise rights for John Carter have reverted back to the company. Walt Disney Pictures held the rights and produced the movie John Carter in 2012. Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. will be seeking a new studio to continue this seminal Sci-Fi adventure.

Here's what James Sullos, President, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., had to say in a statement.

"John Carter of Mars was the creative stimulus behind such movie classics as Superman, Star Wars and Avatar. Edgar Rice Burroughs was the Master of Adventure and his literary works continue to enjoy a world-wide following.

John Carter of Mars rights leave Disney, seek new studio

21 October 2014 3:13 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Disney has lost the film rights to John Carter of Mars.

The property has reverted to Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc, which is already planning to find a new studio to bring the classic pulp property to the screen, reports Film Divider.

"We will be seeking a new partner to help develop new adventures on film as chronicled in the eleven Mars novels Burroughs wrote," said company president James Sullos. "This adventure never stops."

Disney shelved plans for sequels to its 2012 film John Carter after a disappointing performance at the box office.

Taylor Kitsch starred in Andrew Stanton's movie alongside Lynn Collins, Samantha Morton, Mark Strong and Dominic West.

Warner Bros is currently developing a film based on another classic Burroughs property, Tarzan. »

Disney loses John Carter movie rights, new studio sought

20 October 2014 11:21 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Disney no longer has the rights to make John Carter movies and TV shows, as Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc seeks "a new partner".

And just when you thought the cinematic adventures of John Carter might be done and dusted, here comes an olive branch. Andrew Stanton's John Carter movie may well have cost a lot of money, and may not have made enough of it back to keep Disney happy, but it remains a film with no shortage of fans. Furthermore, Stanton had mapped out two further films, all based on the Edgar Rice Burroughs source material.

Yet the financial write-down that Disney took on the first John Carter film meant that plans for those follow-ups were abandoned. Bluntly, Disney had no intention of financing a John Carter 2. Andrew Stanton moved on to directing the Finding Nemo follow-up, Finding Dory.

As for John Carter? Film Divider is now reporting »

Let's take a close look at every DC movie coming out between now and 2020

15 October 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

Further proving that we are living through the biggest week for superhero-movie news since last week and the week before, Warner Bros. just announced one of the most hilariously aggressive franchise-extension plans in movie history. Between now and 2020, WB plans to release a whopping 13 movies based on DC comic book characters–including two Justice League movies, the long-awaited Wonder Woman film, a movie starring the popular Lego™ Batman character and a movie starring the somewhat less popular AffleckBatman character. Now, it's hard to know where this fits into the glorious history of Superhero Franchise announcements. Is this the second »

'Gambit' X-Men Spinoff Will Be a Unique Origin Movie

15 October 2014 11:34 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in May, producer Lauren Shuler Donner confirmed that Channing Tatum will star as the mystical, card-throwing Cajun mutant Remy LeBeau, a.k.a. Gambit, after the actor spent months campaigning for the role in various interviews. We also reported that the actor will first appear in X-Men: Apocalypse before his own stand-alone Gambit adventure. While doing press for The Book of Life, Channing Tatum offered an update on the movie, revealing that they are searching for a writer to give this character a unique origin story in what will be a smaller movie than we usually see in the X-Men franchise.

"We're finding a writer and sort of beating it out. We really do want to try our hardest to give something fresh. We're obviously going to go to the saving the world superhero movies eventually, but not for the first one. We kind of want to introduce this »

The struggle is real for these pint-sized actresses.

True Detective Primer: The Darkest Roles from Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, and Vince Vaughn

26 September 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Earlier this week HBO finally confirmed that both Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn had signed on for the second season of True Detective. And if sources are correct, both men will be joined by Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch, who will round out the series’ four lead roles. The casting news is sure to draw excitement and ire among fans as debate unfolds about whether or not each actor is the right choice.

While it remains to be seen just how each actor does in the series, we rounded up their best roles that serve as a primer to the crime drama.

Most mans of Vince Vaughn know him for his hilarious comedies, such as Wedding Crashers and Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, but there was a time when the actor explored a more serious side of things. In 2000′s The Cell, Vaughn goes inside the mind of a serial »

Rachel McAdams Offered True Detective Role

26 September 2014 7:49 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

HBO has offered Rachel McAdams the lead female role in their drama thriller True Detective, and I think it'd be smart of her to take it. If she does, she will join Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn, who she starred alongside in the comedy Wedding Crashers. There's one other lead role that needs to be filled as well, and that is expected to go to Taylor Kitsch

Justin Lin (Fast and Furious franchise) is set to direct the first two episodes of Season 2, which is set in California and revolves around three police officers and a career criminal who navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder. McAdams would play one of the three cops.

Creator Nic Pizzolatto has been hard at work writing the series, which is sure to be a huge hit. The first season was amazing, and I can only imagine that the second »

Rachel McAdams joins True Detective as female lead

25 September 2014 11:45 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

After we learnt that Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell have joined True Detective season 2, Rachel McAdams has now entered the mix...

True Detective season two casting announcements are like buses – they take blummin’ ages to arrive, and people seem to have polarised opinions about them (so far).

On an unrelated note, today we had our second cast confirmation in as many days after a long wait - It’s been announced that Mean Girls, Sherlock Holmes and About Time actress Rachel McAdams will be playing the female lead.

If you’ve seen the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s excellent turn in A Most Wanted Man, you’ll know that McAdams is no stranger to tense realistically-shot investigatory drama.

We’ve known for a while that the second season would centre on three detectives –two male, one female. We now have two thirds of that confirmed in the shape of Colin Farrell and Rachel McAdams. »

Wanted: Rachel McAdams For ‘True Detective’ Season Two

25 September 2014 3:17 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The male cast is largely in place.  The question now for True Detective fans – who will play the female lead? While Rachel McAdams has been high on the production team’s wishlist for a while, her involvement is getting close to reality with the news she is in talks to join the second season. The diverse range of actresses mooted for the part have included Rosario Dawson and Jessica Biel but reportedly McAdams is the name that will shortly be announced to join Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn. Taylor Kitsch is also said to be about to sign on the dotted line.

Recently following her turn in Richard Curtis’s About Time with John Le Carre’s A Most Wanted Man, McAdams is one of those high profile talents who is keen to take on different types of roles. That shouldn’t be a problem here as she’s wanted to play Ani Bezzerides, »

McAdams Nearly Set For "True Detective"

25 September 2014 3:03 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

HBO has reportedly offered Rachel McAdams the lead female role in the second season of "True Detective" and Variety indicates she's locking down the role right now.

McAdams would join the currently confirmed Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn in the series, with the fourth lead role expected to go to Taylor Kitsch. McAdams appears to have beaten out the likes of Jessica Biel and Malin Akerman for the role.

The main issue has been one of scheduling with McAdams about to start the Catholic Church sex scandal "Spotlight". In the past day or so, a deal has apparently been worked out so the actress could do both projects.

Justin Lin is set to direct the first two episodes of the HBO drama's second season which revolves around three police officers and a career criminal who navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder. »

Rachel McAdams Just Might Be Getting On This ‘True Detective’ Train

25 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

See? We told you guys to just wait — and, yes, we had to take that advice to heart, too — because, no matter what the addition of Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn to the True Detective second season roster meant, it didn’t mean that casting was over. Now, well, casting still isn’t over, but it’s getting there, and it’s certainly moving in a very nice direction. Variety reports that, as has been rumored off and on for awhile now, Rachel McAdams has been offered one of four lead roles in the HBO series’ second season. The part will reportedly see McAdams playing “a Monterey sheriff with a troubled past that has led her to a gambling and alcohol addiction.” The part is one of three law enforcement types on the new season — Farrell is on board as one, Taylor Kitsch is still expected to play the other, and »
