Chabon to Mars

100%

Michael Chabon During a routine agency poaching scoop in which Nikki Finke over at "Deadline Hollywood Daily" reported on UTA stealing Pulitzer Prize winning author Michael Chabon away from CAA, she very nonchalantly drops the following little line: "Chabon also wrote on Spider-Man 2 and scripted John Carter Of Mars for Disney." Hold the phone, sister. You mean the JOHN CARTER OF MARS Pixar is developing and Andrew Stanton's directing? When in the name of Valhalla did this shit happen? Who knows but the folks over at Chabon fansite "The Amazing Website of Kavalier and Clay" had the same knee-jerk reaction and went straight to the source to ask him plainly WTF. His response: "I’ve been hired to do some revisions to an already strong script by Andrew Stanton and Mark Andrews. 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.” Whoa. This shit just got interesting.

But Disney?

I don't know if making it a Disney/Pixar film will allow it to be true to the source material ...

holy shit

Love Chabon's work as far as novels go. And as a sci fi nut and Chabon fan, this did indeed just get interesting. Can't freakin wait.

I recall an interview with Chabon where he revealed that despite having plenty of ideas, the only line he got into Spider-Man 2 was the hero saying "This is really heavy." when holding up the wall at the end.

Anything he's attached to is worthy of notice.

Whoa.

That is pretty fucking neat. I have yet to read a Chabon book but I've been itching to read Kavalier and Clay and The Yiddish Policeman's Union.

Especially Policeman's Union since the Coen Bros. are slated to film the movie version.

But yeah...Nice move. Shit did just get even more interesting.
