Willem Dafoe who recently finished The Vampire's Assistant (AKA Cirque du Freak) and Daybreakers is going to star alongside Taylor Kitsch, and Lynn Collins in adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs's series of books. So you might expect sequels if the movie do good at the box office. Kitsch and Collins previously worked together in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
John Carter of Mars is about Civil War vet John Carter(Kitsch) who is transplanted to Mars, where he discovers a lush, wildly diverse planet whose main inhabitants are 12-foot tall green barbarians. Finding himself a prisoner of these creatures, he escapes, only to encounter Dejah Thoris(Collins), Princess of Helium, who is in desperate need of a savior. Dafoe will play Tars Tarkas, a leader of the Thark race who fights battles alongside Carter.
