December 5, 1929: Warner Bros. releases the movie adaptation of the first novel in Edgar Rice Burroughs' Barsoom series, A Princess of Mars, starring Errol Flynn as John Carter,...
If you want a ERB Barsoom movie in Live Action in 1929, then it would have to be done by RKO. They had Willis O Brian under contract since 1928. O Brian is the person who animated the first adaption of Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Lost World" and latter the Classic King Kong. There is no one else in 1928 that could do the Creatures Effects .
And of any of the Producers Merian C Cooper would have been the only one that might have considered a Sci Fiction movie at that point in time in Hollywood.

Also in 1929 Errol Flynn is still down in the South Seas , moving back and force between Papua New Guinea and Sydney seeking his fortune.
He does not do his first film till 1933 and does not go to Hollywood till 1935.

The only other think that occurred to me when I read the timeline was
February 10, 1957: John Carter Saves The Universe (Allied Artists) written and directed by Roger Corman, based on the Edgar Rice Burroughs novels, stars teen sensation Fabian as the titular character, starring Beverly Garland as Dejah Thoris, makes its hit debut, despite low budget for B-grade special effects,....
Those low budget effect could have also been done by Willis O Brian.
He got hired a couple of times for films special effects but not to animate creatures.
He was the effect advisor on the Irwin Allen Film "The Lost World 1960" in which instead of Stop Motion Dinosaurs , he matted the real lizards to make them look giant.

In place of Errol Flynn for John Carter in 1929 , you might go with Joel McCrea. Have him move to RKO from MGM a year earlier.
