The ERB Pirates of Venus Film Project
San Diego, CA September 5, 2007 – Angelic Pictures, Inc.
announces the completion of the Pirates of Venus treatment and screenplay
adaptation from one of the world’s most popular novelists Edgar Rice Burroughs’.
The executives are in the midst of developing the live action motion picture.
The adaptation of Burroughs’ classic science fiction fantasy has been registered
at the Writer’s Guild of America.
Angelic’s Head of Production, Bruce Pobjoy says, “Not
only is this screenplay a major milestone in the lifecycle of this project,
but it is a fantastic amount of fun. It is our intention to be loyal to
the integrity of Burroughs’ writing, while at the same time updating, and
modernizing the story for today’s sensibilities, and sophisticated movie
audiences. The film is going to be quite a ride.”
Commissioned by Angelic Pictures, the screenplay brings
to life one of Burroughs’ most unique and colorful heroes, Carson Napier
in his adventures of discovery and peril on the clouded planet of Venus.
Napier is said to be the character most infused with Burroughs’ own personality.
“It has been a dream of mine to bring the vivid imagination
of Edgar Rice Burroughs to the screen.” Pobjoy stated, “Today we have an
incredible screenplay, which combined with new advances in technology and
film making, will have the spectacular outer-space worlds of ERB thrilling
today’s film consumers.”

during his lifetime, including 24 novels in the famous Tarzan series. The
