Disney's so quick to throw any suspect property under the bus, and now they're salivating over Star Wars. Why hasn't someone else picked up John Carter? Any fan of books knows just how potent the story is. So rich in detail and plot. But, Disney still holds the rights? Something I never figured out is why, if these films are such deplorable garbage to them, why don't they sell the rights and be done with it? Afraid someone will make them look like an idiot by doing a better film?
