Of course, Yates is most well known for his work on the Harry Potter franchise and obviously, that’s the reason that Warner Bros. wants him on Tarzan. The man made them a ton of money with his Harry Potter films, so it would make sense that they’d want him in the driver’s seat for another big franchise.
Furthermore, Yates has already started taking meetings with various actors who he has his eye on for the lead role. Right now, Tom Hardy is said to be the frontrunner but the director has also been talking with Henry Cavill, Charlie Hunnam and Alexander Skarsgard. Not a bad batch of talent if you ask me.
It’s nice to see everything coming together on this one as Warner Bros. »
