Rodriguez Talks Mars: Director addresses DGA snafu.

April 20, 2004 - Entertainment Weekly has asked filmmaker Robert Rodriguez about his status as the director of Paramount/Alphaville's A Princess of Mars (a.k.a. John Carter of Mars). Rodriguez's recent decision to resign from the Directors Guild of America placed his ability to helm the big-screen adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' classic sci-fi novel in doubt. As a DGA signatory, Paramount is not allowed to hire a non-union director. Rodriguez advised EW, however, that the situation is under control.

"I can still do that movie," claims Rodriguez, "because I was assigned to it before I left the DGA. I'll occupy that island of misfit directors like Quentin Tarantino and George Lucas. (Laughs) It's actually quite nice here."

For Disney, a spoonful of sugar helps the musical go down,1413,125~1549~2087779,00.html
. . . Crowley will design and direct another musical still in the development stages: "Tarzan," another cartoon adaptation. This one features music by Phil Collins, who has augmented his original, Academy Award-winning score. Playwright David Henry Hwang ("M. Butterfly") is writing the book and rooting it strongly in the Edgar Rice Burroughs novels. . . .
