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.”

Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875-1950) produced over 88 novels during his lifetime, including 24 novels in the famous Tarzan series. The Venus series topped all his pervious sales at their time of publication. Burroughs’ tales of adventure have endured the test of time and maintain wide popularity today.

Inspiration, creativity and entertainment are traits Angelic Pictures mandates for all their film and media projects. The option of Burroughs’ novels fits well in the Angelic plan of wide appeal, marketability and quality.
