John Carter of Mars gets Solomon Kane, Sandman and Lord Blackwood

Posted by LiveFor on September 30, 2009

js1024_JAMES_PUREFOYJames Purefoy (Solomon Kane), Thomas Haden Church (Spider-Man 3, Sideways) and Mark Strong (RocknRolla, Sherlock Holmes) have officially boarded John Carter of Mars, according to Heat Vision. Haden Church had mentioned he would be in it a while ago.

Andrew Stanton is directing Disney’s adaptation of the Edgar Rice Burroughs books. Taylor Kitsch and Lynn Collins star in the film, alongside Willem Dafoe, Samantha Morton, Dominic West, Polly Walker.

The film centers on a Civil War veteran (Kitsch) who finds himself mysteriously transported to Mars, where he becomes embroiled with the planet’s warring people.

Church plays Tal Hajus, an ambitious and vicious Thark warrior who is biding his time to be a ruler.

Purefoy plays Kantos Kan, the captain of the Xavarian, the kingdom of Helium’s grand warship. Strong is Matai Shang, the ruler of the Thems with godlike status.

All in all it is shaping up to have one hell of a cast.

    I Have my doubts,but I won’t past judgement until I see the movie. The casting so far looks pretty good. I have been a fan of the books since I was a hatchling myself and I have hopes for this movie.
