Double Academy Award-winning director of Finding Nemo and WALL-E, Andrew Stanton, is currently working on his first foray into live action, an adaptation of the classic sci-fi fantasy novel John Carter of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs. For some reason, though, Disney has now changed the title from that to “Gary Carter,” the Hall Of Fame catcher for the 1986 New York Mets. No, I’m sorry. I meant John Carter. That’s the new official title. For real.
Another title change is one that’s makes a little more sense. Andrew Niccol is currently working on his Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried sci-fi film which was originally called I’m.mortal, then Now, but is now called In Time.
Getting out of the sci-fi genre, a new Maggie Gyllenhaal movie directed by Daniel Barnz (Beastly) was originally called Still I Rise but is now called Steel Town. Read more about all of these after the break. Read More »
