    The ensemble cast is led by Taylor Kitsch (NBC'S "Friday Night Lights," X-Men Origins: Wolverine) in the title role, Lynn Collins (50 First Dates, X-Men Origins: Wolverine) as the warrior princess Dejah Thoris and Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man, Shadow of theVampire) as Martian inhabitant Tars Tarkas. The cast also includes Thomas Haden <NOBR style="COLOR: darkgreen; FONT-SIZE: 100%; FONT-WEIGHT: normal" id=itxt_nobr_22_0>Church</NOBR> (Sideways, Spider-Man 3), Polly Walker (upcoming Clash of the Titans, Patriot Games), Samantha Morton (Elizabeth: The Golden Age, In America), Mark Strong (Sherlock Holmes, Body of Lies), Ciaran Hinds (Munich, There Will Be Blood), British actor Dominic West (300, Chicago), James Purefoy (Vanity Fair, Resident Evil) and Bryan Cranston ("Breaking Bad"). Daryl Sabara (Disney's A Christmas Carol, "Spy Kids" films) takes the role of John Carter's teenaged nephew, Edgar Rice Burroughs.

    The creative team includes Oscar-nominated production designer Nathan Crowley (Public Enemies, The Dark Knight, Batman Begins), costume designer Mayes Rubeo (Avatar, Apocalypto), cinematographer Daniel Mindel (Star Trek, Mission Impossible III, Spy Game) and video effects supervisor Peter Chiang (The Reader, The Bourne Ultimatum).

    John Carter of Mars is being made and released under Walt Disney Pictures. It is not being made by Pixar, but several Pixar people are involved. Also, Double Negative appears to be doing the visual effects for the film. http://www.dneg.com/projects/projects_list.html Double Negative has created the visual effects for several big films as you can see on this project list.
