Disney no longer owns the rights to the John Carter franchise, with Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc. now planning to make more movies.
Disney spent many years attempting to bring an adaptation of the sci-fi saga to the big screen, only for the eventual film to fall flat with both critics and punters alike.
However, fans of the series will be gladdened to hear that further movie outings are on the agenda, with The Playlist reporting that Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc. is actively looking for production partners…
"We will be seeking a new partner to help develop new adventures on film as chronicled in the eleven Mars novels Burroughs wrote," reads an official statement from the company. "This adventure never stops."
"Along with a new Tarzan film in development by Warner Bros., we hope to have John Carter Of Mars become another major franchise to entertain world-wide audiences of all ages."
