In this week's edition of The New Yorker
, Tad Friend profiles Andrew Stanton, a long-time member of the "Pixar Braintrust" who's making his live-action directing debut with 'John Carter.' That Disney film hits theaters in 2012, and has already cost upward of $250 million -- meaning it will have to earn around $700 million to make a sequel worthwhile. As the profile indicates, Stanton is under a lot of pressure, continually tinkering with the Taylor Kitsch-led film -- something that might seem odd expect for the fact that it's also how he worked at Pixar.
