Is Disney getting ready to finally begin filming on JOHN CARTER OF MARS later this year? A report in the Salt Lake Tribune of Utah (via Ain't It Cool) says that they've just approved a request by the JOHN CARTER production company to film in Utah for 45 days starting in November. The film, which will mark the live-action directorial debut of Pixar's Andrew Stanton (WALL-E), has been in development for many years with Jon Favreau and Robert Rodriguez all taking a stab and trying to get the film before cameras.

The paper lists the production running from November of 2009 to July 2010, which is a pretty big span of time to be filming. In Utah they'll be filming in the Lake Powell and Moab areas, among others (I've included some photographic samples of those areas below to give you an idea what to expect). This isn't the first time Utah has doubled as another planet in a movie. Just this summer, the San Rafael Swell as on screen as the planet Vulcan in STAR TREK.

A while back Stanton had said he had actors in mind for the major roles in the film so with a filming date approaching, we'll keep our ears to the ground for any news on who would star in the film. Stay tuned!

Extra Tidbit: Pixar will not be releasing the film because they don't want the PG-13 content to interfere with their family-friendly image.

With this and the Brad Bird movie 1906, Pixar is going to PWN Hollywood. If they are able to take the same masterful storytelling skills present in all of their CG movies to live action, its going to be a great future for film.

ps. i know its not exactly a Pixar film, but many from Pixar will be on bored here, not just a director a couple of other positions either.

It would be sweet if Pixar did the special effects for these two movies!!

Who wants to bet we get some casting info for Comic Con, and by that I mean the cast gets leaked a week or two before Comic Con.
