1.) Jessica Chastain is the first name rumored for the role of Jane in the new adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs's Tarzan to be directed by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows helmer David Yates. Yates was previously said to be looking at Alexander Skarsgard ("True Blood") for the title role and now the New York Post reports Chastain "is said to be the first choice to play Jane in a new version of 'Tarzan'... In this story, the jungle boy is fully assimilated to life in London when Queen Victoria asks him to investigate troubles in the Congo." Stephen Sommers and Stuart Beattie penned the screenplay. 2.) This next news couldn't have come at a better time as George Clooney's The Monuments Men is included in Part Three of my 2014 Oscar Preview, which will go live shortly and I wouldn't have wanted to have the cast list wrong. »
