I hope they do as good a job on this as Disney did on John Carter.  Despite the box office failure, the family and I loved John Carter.  And Tarzan is Burroughs' more known character so hope it's a hit and well made.

If it's well made, it will be fun to watch.  I was sooo looking forward to the Lone Ranger, and got worried as soon as I saw who was making the film and then heard Johnny Depp was Tonto, fearing that this was going to miss the whole point of what the Lone Ranger was about.  Turns out my fears were well-founded..  So far, no red flags yet about this movie, though I am a little leary on the casting...

 i thought skarsgard played the scientist under lokis power in avengers...if so isnt he a little old to be tarzan??

I loved John Carter too, was hoping for another one of those.  I still think they didn't advertise well for that one.  As for Tarzan, I hope they take it serious and not make it comical.  Not to say I don't want comical moments, just not silly.

I agree with Jacen....if they follow the book (minus the racisim) this could be a Raiders like epic. and i agree with Dalgoda...disneys was the best! @ Vagabond  - Stellan Skarsgard is the father who is in the avengers movies....tAlexander is his son (from True Blood and Generation Kill) and a pretty good actor.

 Why isn't there any current news on this site?  Nothing since 2/13/14?

That's Stellan Skarsgard, vagabondster, not Alexander.  It was bad enough seeing Stellan prance around in his underwear in Thor 2: The Dark World, I can't imagine him as Tarzan! 

Now, I believe that Stellan is actually Alexander's father (correct me if I'm wrong, Maniacs), so I can see the reason for the mix-up!

 JacenBlade...interesting answer to my query. You make some valid points.  I did think the books (didn't read them all).  were better than the movies for the most part and I agree with your assessment of the Christopher Lambert movie.

I used to enjoy watching the antics of chimps in these films...but after learning of Chimpanzees killing and maiming people (in real life)  I no longer look at them in the same light (they're a little scary now).

After 6 years of True Blood ( 7 before this comes out ) it will be hard to look at Alex Skarsgard and not think Eric Northman

Switching gears...I too enjoyed John Carter...so much so, that I wouldn't have minded a sequel.  Liked it more than Avatar.
