Princess of Mars Retraction — Sorry, Mike!

Yikes! I’ve made only a handful of blog entries and I’ve already got to make my first news retraction!

ATTENTION: As much as we all would love to see him on board such a production, Michael Kaluta is NOT working on the film version of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ “A Princess of Mars”. Bernie Wrightson still is — but not Michael. Mike worked about as long as I did on the show.

Michael may still be hired if the “…Princess…” project jumps its next batch of hurdles and gets its final green light from Paramount (to mix a few metaphors). Let’s all wish him luck!

If you want to see some great artwork be sure to visit the Official Michael Wm Kaluta Website:
