The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that three more actors have joined the cast of Disney’s adaptation of John Carter of Mars. Samantha Morton will play Sola, the daughter of Tarks Tarkas (played by Willem Defoe), Dominic West has been cast a Sab Than, the prince of the Zodangans, while Polly Walker plays Sarkoja, a Thark baddie.

The cast is certainly shaping up, and while I have faith in Andrew Stanton’s adaptation, the whole Disney name attached to it means a toned down story that is full of violence.  Still, the Edgar Rice Burroughs book, A Princess of Mars,  is full of adventure, and should be different enough that audience will get a kick out of it.
