Taylor Kitsch will not do a sequel for John Carter without Andrew Stanton
There's been tons of talk about how JOHN CARTER might be a massive box office bomb for Disney. Despite the unknown, director Andrew Stanton seems to have a vision for the sequel. However, if a second installment does move forward, Taylor Kitsch will only reprise his role if Stanton directs.
While doing press for the film, the peeps over at /Film spoke with both Kitsch and Stanton about a sequel. Kitsch's statements are up first, "Its such an origin story for JC, this one, and youre always trying to ground yourself, in the first weeks of any film, of the tone, the character, of all that stuff. But now we have it. This sequel, were landing and were going full tilt. So thats what Im excited to do. You guys will know where John is so theres no explaining the back story anymore. And I know where Stantons going with it and its pretty great."
Then they ask if they think Stanton will definitely come back for a sequel, "Him? Yeah. Yeah I wont do it unless its him."
Next up is Stanton, "I fell so in love with the cast and the crew and how the results were coming together the way I wanted to, I started investing in writing the second one more seriously. Economics will be the reason why it goes forward or doesnt go forward. Thats the biggest reason. And weve been very practical since day one, our first conversation six years ago in 2006, well see how this goes and if it goes well, well be primed and ready to do the next one. and if not, Ive got plenty of other ideas."
Stanton was then informed of Kitsch's undying allegiance, "Well, hes a sweetheart and Id like to say the same."
