Par beaming Kruger to 'Mars'

10 October 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Ehren Kruger is going to Mars. The scribe, who wrote The Ring and the upcoming The Ring 2, has come aboard to write John Carter of Mars, which is being directed by Kerry Conran for Paramount Pictures. Alphaville's Jim Jacks and Sean Daniel are producing. Based on the first book in Edgar Rice Burroughs' 11-book science-fiction series, Mars centers on John Carter, a Civil War officer from Virginia who is transported to Mars and finds himself a captive of the savage green men from Thark. Eventually he rises to become the greatest warrior of all time, marries the beautiful Dejah Thoris, raises a family and embarks on numerous adventures. The project was previously known as A Princess of Mars, which was the title of the series' first book. Mark Protosevich wrote the previous draft. Kruger wrote Skeleton Key, which is shooting with Kate Hudson starring, as well as Arlington Road and Scream 3. He is repped by Paradigm. »

Conran tapped for 'Princess'

30 July 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Alphaville's sci-fi adventure-action picture A Princess of Mars is closing in on a new captain: director Kerry Conran. Conran, whose Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, is set for release Sept. 17, is in negotiations to direct Princess, a Paramount-based production, as his next project. Conran entered the picture after former Princess director Robert Rodriguez resigned from the DGA earlier this year, making him ineligible to direct the Paramount tentpole. Based on the first book in Edgar Rice Burroughs' 11-volume John Carter of Mars series, the property is being developed as a major franchise. Alphaville's previous forays into the fantasy and f/x arena include The Mummy franchise and its spinoff The Scorpion King. »

Protosevich on 'Poseidon' trip

28 April 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Mark Protosevich has been hired to write The Poseidon Adventure, the remake that Wolfgang Petersen's Radiant Pictures and reality TV impresario Mike Fleiss are producing for Warner Bros. Pictures. The original movie, released in 1972 by 20th Century Fox, told the story of a ragtag group of survivors trapped on a passenger ship after it is capsized by a monster wave. Produced by Irwin Allen, it was part of a cycle of big-budget disaster movies that proved popular in the 1970s. It was followed by the 1979 sequel Beyond the Poseidon Adventure, which was released by Warner Bros. The new movie, which is being eyed as a big-budget tentpole, would be set in the present day and follow a new set of characters as they brave fires, explosions and flooding corridors in their attempt to survive after a tidal wave flips the S.S. Poseidon. Radiant's Diana Rathbun also is producing, and the company's Samuel Dickerman is executive producing. Chris Briggs is co-producing. Protosevich is no stranger to writing on large canvases. He is the screenwriter of A Princess of Mars, which Paramount Pictures has developed for Robert Rodriguez to direct, and he wrote New Line Cinema's The Cell. He also scripted Warners' I Am Legend and Paramount's Stranger in a Strange Land. Protosevich is repped by CAA. »
