John Carter of Mars

It look’s like Disney might produce a series of films based on John Carter of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs:

Disney options ‘Mars’ series

“Disney is optioning rights to the Edgar Rice Burroughs sci-fi series “John Carter of Mars” as a potential franchise for the studio. The pic begins with a Civil War veteran whose retreat into a cave to avoid capture by Apache Indians takes an otherworldly turn as he’s transported via time portal to the planet of Barsoom and taken prisoner by 12-foot-tall green men. Burroughs wrote eleven volumes of Carter’s adventures and Disney is hoping the film will launch a franchise.”
