We haven't really heard much about the new Tarzan movie being directed by Harry Potter's David Yates since it was announced last year. The film is set up at Warner Bros. and apparently it will maintain the period setting of Burroughs' novels. The screenplay was written by Stephen Sommers and Stuart Beattie, and the live-action film is an adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' 1912 book Tarzan of the Apes.
We previously heard that Yates was looking at Henry Cavill (Man of Steel), Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim), Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood), and Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rise) to possibly take on the lead role in the film. There was also a rumor that Samuel L. Jackson was up for the part of Williams, a Civil War veteran seeking redemption for his part in atrocities committed against Native Americans.
We now have another name to add to the list of potential actors to join the project. »
