Taylor Kitsch, the man with the playing cards, staff, and magenta dress shirt in Wolverine, has been given the lead in Pixar's live-action adaptation of John Carter of Mars, while Lynn Collins, also unfortunate enough to have explained the X-man's origins, is set to co-star. Says The Hollywood Reporter:
Taylor Kitsch and Lynn Collins will star in "John Carter of Mars," the adaptation of the Edgar Rice Burroughs book series that Andrew Stanton is directing for Disney.
"Carter" centers on a civil war veteran who finds himself mysteriously transported to Mars, where his involvement with warring races of the dying planet force him to rediscover his humanity.
Kitsch will play the title character, while Collins is playing Dejah Thoris, heir to the throne of Mars' Helium kingdom.
Collecting actors from Wolverine seems an odd choice, given that the most commonly-gathered thing from that movie is contempt, but I guess these two are as good as anyone else to sell the unlikely story of A Civil War Veteran in Mars' Helium Court. With Disney pulling the strings, I'm just happy it isn't Family Favorite Adventurer Brendan Fraser and his Hammy, Wide-Eyed Stares of Mars.

After all, anyone who can spend money on a paid television system is also usually willing to invest in a broadband connection.

After all, not only is Netflix available for a large number of devices, but it has enough content to compete with the library of titles of any world-renowned network. Read more
