Willem Dafoe Says John Carter Of Mars Starts Filming In London Next Week

Willem Dafoe is out on the publicity rounds for Daybreakers, and fielding questions from i09 about Andrew Stanton's John Carter of Mars in which he'll be playing Tars Tarkas, a ten foot tall martian warrior.

There's some things he would talk about – "I saw [Stanton] recently because we start in London, for studio stuff. I start next week", "I think officially production starts the 18th", "[Stanton] showed me the different variations of how they will shoot it, the kind of equipment I'll have to wear, the different times I won't have to wear certain kinds of equipment and all that", ; and other things he wouldn't reveal, like whether or not he'll be wearing prosthetic arms or putting on a 'special voice'

Previously we expected shooting to start last November in Utah.
