After a few years and many directors attached - Gary Ross, Susanna White and Craig Brewer - Harry Potter director David Yates will officially direct Warner Bros.' new Tarzan film, written by Brewer. As to who will play the famous man of the jungle, Yates will meet with several actors including the new Superman, Henry Cavill (Man of Steel), Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim) and Alexander Skarsgård of True Blood. Warner Bros. has been rumored to be desperately seeking Tom Hardy for Tarzan, after his roles in their films The Dark Knight Rises and Inception.
There is already another Tarzan film coming, in 3D motion capture with Twilight's Kellan Lutz as Tarzan, in a modern day setting. Yates' Tarzan will maintain the period setting of Burroughs' novels. I'm particularly excited to see a live-action Tarzan back on the big screen, especially with Brewer's involvement. Among the actors mentioned, who would you like to see cast as the King of the Apes?
