Willem Dafoe has joined Taylor Kitsch and Lynn Collins in Disney’s adaptation of “John Carter of Mars.”
Directed by Andrew Stanton, the film is based on a series of books by Edgar Rice Burroughs.
The film tells the story of a Civil War soldier transported to the red planet where warring races vie for control, Dafoe will play Tars Tarkas, a leader of the Thark race who knows that the only way his people can survive is if they turn away from war, a position that may cost him dearly.
The film is set to begin production in early 2010.
