temporary hijack
Have folks heard that Disney/Pixar is doing a quasi-live action John Carter movie?
See http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0401729/fullcredits#writers
It appears to be mostly the "Princess of Mars" debut story, and not the really lame novella of the same title that wound up the Burroughs series.
This was kicked around for a while now.
Quote
In 2004 - when the project was still known as "A Princess of Mars" after the book on which it's based - Robert Rodriguez had originally been signed and announced as director and had begun pre-production early that year (it would have been his largest project to date with starting budget reported at $100 million). Rodriguez' most notable contribution was to hire fantasy painter Frank Frazetta (whose most acclaimed works have included striking illustrations of Edgar Rice Burroughs novels, most notably the "John Carter on Mars" books) as production designer on the film. However, when Rodriguez resigned from the Directors' Guild of America (DGA) the same year (due to a dispute over his film Sin City (2005)), Paramount was forced to replace him. The studio has a long-standing arrangement with the DGA in which only the organization's members may direct Paramount films. He was replaced with director Kerry Conran, who had just finished Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow (2004). In 2005, Conran left the project and was replaced by Jon Favreau just before the release of Favreau's movie Zathura: A Space Adventure (2005).
Sadly, I don't see Frazetta's name in the crew now. Not sure if I would bother to go see it if he's not involved.

If my post seems random, that's because it is.

I see the chest as a rich colored wood with brass fittings.

that's what happens when you rely on image search in China.  images get broken.
