    'John Carter' Had A Lengthy 18 Day Reshoot To Improve & Correct Story Issues

    Movie Will Need To Make At Least $700 Million To Green Light A Sequel"Reshoots should be mandatory," director Andrew Stanton recently told the New Yorker in an extensive profile. He said this while on the set of his first live action movie "John Carter" during an extensive 18 day reshoot this past April. While the term "reshoot" is generally shorthand used to denote a troubled production, for Stanton, who comes from the world of Pixar where films are storyboarded in full, critiqued, broken down and retooled numerous times before animation even begins, it's a luxury that he feels every production should take advantage of.
