Vuture.com is reporting that David Yates, the director of the last 4 Harry Potter films, has committed to the new Tarzan film. The big screen adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic character will be for Warner Brothers.
No one is cast in the project yet. Vuture is reporting that Yates has meetings with Henry Cavhill (Superman in Man of Steel) and Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim) and True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgård. Don’t count out Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) either at this point.
The film will be produced by Jerry Weintraub (Ocean’s Eleven). The film has no release date yet.
