Taylor Kitsch will not do a sequel for John Carter without Andrew Stanton

02.22.2012

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, "It’s such an origin story for JC, this one, and you’re 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, we’re landing and we’re going full tilt. So that’s what I’m excited to do. You guys will know where John is so there’s no explaining the back story anymore. And I know where Stanton’s going with it and it’s pretty great."

Then they ask if they think Stanton will definitely come back for a sequel, "Him? Yeah. Yeah I won’t do it unless it’s 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 doesn’t go forward. That’s the biggest reason. And we’ve been very practical since day one, our first conversation six years ago in 2006, we’ll see how this goes and if it goes well, we’ll be primed and ready to do the next one. and if not, I’ve got plenty of other ideas."

Stanton was then informed of Kitsch's undying allegiance, "Well, he’s a sweetheart and I’d like to say the same."

Waterworld wasnt actually such a bomb, it made its money back on its run worldwide and turned a profit on vhs, it just wasnt a watershed success, the media just played it up because it was so expensive and a disatorous shoot.

Everything looks good to me.

Where has the tons of talk about John Carter being a massive box office flop outside of Joblo? Not being sarcastic here, I'm genuinely curious.

Ive read in talkbacks for aintitcool, empire, etc that everyones not excited to see this and it'll flop. Mind you thats not anything official at all, just my two cents on the word of mouth.

Yeah, they've been getting pretty lazy with the grammar around here lately. It seems almost everyday, that I find an article where I'll have to reread a line because it didn't make sense the first time.

It's gonna bomb. I don't think it'll make nothing, but it'll be a Prince of Persia or Cowboys and Aliens-type bomb, only making $60-100 million, which will be admirable but not enough to justify its budget.

At least its not a sequel or a prequel. I for one am going to see it. I hope it blows me away....I really do. If not then it'll be $22 down the drain. IMO it does look good.

P.S. Someone please fix the link to the full HTML site for the iphones. It pisses me off when I cant get my joblo fix when out and about. It keeps sending me to the Mobile Friendly site which sucks ass as I cant comment. Thanks.

Many people thought the first Pirates of the Caribbean would bomb too. I have hopes that good movies will make good money. *crosses fingers*

Perhaps the studio can do the sequel without Kitsch.

I hope it does well. I always liked Kitsch on FNL and the stuff Stanton has done at Pixar is legendary. That said, I read that John Carter would have to make 750 million worldwide to trigger a sequel and that seems out of reach for this movie. Disney's marketing team has done a poor job drawing interest for this film from anyone not already predisposed to see it.
