"John Carter of Mars" by Pixar?

Is Pixar going into VFX work?

Luxo points to a Filmstew article, which says (among other things):

Screenwriter and first-time director Mark Fergus (First Snow) came this close to convincing Paramount to move forward with an adaptation of the Edgar Rice Burroughs novel John Carter of Mars. But he’s still stoked at the prospect of Pixar picking up the slack, either by way of animation or special effects enhanced live action.


Even if the creatures are not of this earth, you’d still get an actor to do a performance and their face would actually be melded with the creature, so you’d get a real performance. I think Pixar is going to do it now.”
