The director of final four Harry Potter films for WB has just committed to one of several films in the works based on Edgar Rice Burroughs‘ character and is already meeting with several actors who might play the title role like Henry Cavill, Charlie Hunnam, Alexander Skarsgård, and Tom Hardy.
Vulture notes that it’s unclear how interested Hardy would be in the part.
The project has previously been in development with Ocean’s Eleven producer Jerry Weintraub, and most recently attracted Hustle & Flow director Craig Brewer, but Warner Bros. wanted to hand the project off to one of their most loyal blockbuster-makers instead.
