Mark Protosevich

Mark Protosevich wrote the screenplay for the science fiction thriller The Cell, in which a psychotherapist (played by Jennifer Lopez) journeys inside the mind of a comatose serial killer (Vincent D'Onofrio) in the hopes of saving his latest victim. A well-reviewed box office success, The Cell was released in 2000 and received an Academy Award nomination for Best Makeup. Protosevich also co-produced the film.

Protosevich has also written the screenplay for John Carter of Mars, an ambitious, big-budget project that is currently in pre-production. Based on A Princess of Mars, the first in a series of 11 books written in 1912 by Edgar Rice Burroughs (Tarzan of the Apes) known as The Martian Series, the film deals with the plight of a Civil War veteran who is transported to Mars and finds himself a captive of the savage green men from Thark. Eventually he rises to become the greatest warrior of all time. Jon Favreau (Elf) will direct John Carter of Mars, which will be released later this year.

Additionally, Protosevich has written the screenplay I am Legend, an updated version of Richard Matheson's novel of the same name. Francis Lawrence (Constantine) will direct the film, which is set to be released in 2007.
