Pixar writer-director Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, Wall-E) is moving forward at Disney with his live-action debut John Carter of Mars, which he adapted from the Edgar Rice Burroughs Martian novels. The materials I've seen on James Cameron's Avatar remind me of this alternate world set on another planet. And in both stories, an American visits this faraway place full of strange creatures.

Stanton's a terrific writer-director, but at my February writers panel in Santa Barbara, admitted to some anxiety about working in a strange medium away from his Pixar comfort zone. He has found his two leads in Wolverine stars Taylor Kitsch and Lynn Collins. The movie starts at the first of the year. It's about Civil War hero John Carter (Kitsch) who goes to Mars and meets a princess (Collins). Mark Andrews wrote with Stanton.

We all knew that Daniel Craig was returning for the next James Bond installment set for 2011. Now the producers Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli have hired the writers, adding The Queen's Peter Morgan to the duo who wrote the last two Bonds, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade.
