It’s been quite a while since we heard anything about Warner’s planned Tarzan reboot. Harry Potter director David Yates is attached to helm, and several month ago it was rumoured Alexander Skarsgard was the first choice for the main role (although it hasn’t been revealed if he’s officially signed on).
Now the New York Post suggests the movie may have found its Jane in the form of Jessica Chastain. It isn’t known if an offer has been issued to the actress as yet, but it appears there are talks between the two sides.
The film will follow Tarzan after he’s left the jungle and come to England, but he’s then sent back when Queen Victoria sends him on a mission to investigate a conflict in the Congo. Samuel L. Jackson is said to be in talks to play George Washington Williams, a Civil War veteran who joins forces with Tarzan to stop a nefarious warlord.
David Yates is directing from a screenplay by Stephen Sommers and Stuart Beattie.
