  • 'John Carter of Mars' 2012

    "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston has joined the cast of Walt Disney's "John Carter of Mars."

    Andrew Stanton is directing the production, which goes before cameras next week.

    The adaptation of the Edgar Rice Burroughs book series centers on a Civil War veteran (Taylor Kitsch) who finds himself mysteriously transported to Mars, where he becomes involved with the planet's warring people.

    Cranston plays a Civil War colonel who comes into conflict with Carter.

    Lynn Collins, Willem Dafoe, Samantha Morton and Polly Walker are among the cast.
    Stanton wrote the screenplay with Mark Andrews. Jim Morris, who produced "WALL-E," and Colin Wilson are producing "Carter."

    The movie will be a hybrid of live action and CGI.
