Warner Bros.' upcoming remake of "Tarzan" earned a lot of exciting attention when it was announced back in June. At the time, both "Harry Potter" helmer David Yates and "The Hunger Games" director Gary Ross were considering tackling the classic Edgar Rice Burroughs story, and it seems like one of them has finally emerged victorious.
Vulture is reporting that Yates committed to direct "Tarzan" on Monday, and that he's already looking for his leading man. This will be Yates' first non-"Harry Potter" movie since he directed "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" back in 2007.
It seems as though Warner Bros. and Yates have gone through the list of eligible leading men in Hollywood who aren't currently attached to other major projects right now to try to find their Tarzan. Vulture writes that Henry Cavill, Charlie Hunnam, Alexander Skarsgard and Tom Hardy are all being courted for the role. »
