John Carter of Mars film still in the works

A film version of “A Princess of Mars”, the first in Edgar Rice Burroughs’ John Carter of Mars series has been listed  on IMDB since 2005.

It’s still listed as  in pre-production, with the latest in release dates as 2012. There are also some cast listings.  The most interesting is Willem Dafoe as the Green Martian King Tars Tarkas.

As I said before, this film could be amazingly cool or a fiasco of epic proportions. With William Dafoe on board, I’m leaning more toward amazingly cool.

If the four armed Green Martians look sufficently cool, this could be a plus toward getting David Weber & John Ringo‘s March Upcountry made into a film.  That would be a good thing.
