Michael Chabon on John Carter of Mars!

(via) Ready for some exciting news? How about this?

Michael Chabon Writing John Carter of Mars! (Well, rewriting, actually, but still.)
Almost a week ago, and without any fanfare, Nikki Finke listed John Carter of Mars as one of Michael Chabon’s screenwriting credits; this was then followed up by a Chabon fansite, The Amazing Website of Kavalier and Clay, and they got the author himself confirm:
I’ve been hired to do some revisions to an already strong script by Andrew Stanton and Mark Andrews. I wrote my original screenplay The Martian Agent back in 1995 because I wished I could do Burroughs’s Barsoom. So this is pretty much a dream come true for me.
Yes, please!

Yes, I'll have some!
this really is good news...i so hope that this movie gets made, and they don't screw it up
Well, yee-hah! It be great to finally see this project get to the screen! (and I wonder how the Coen brothers are doing about "The Yiddish Policemen's Union")
