David Yates Courting Tom Hardy, Henry Cavill, Charlie Hunnam & Alexander Skarsgard For Lead Role In ‘Tarzan’
  |  @   |  

After working on the last four installments of Harry Potter, director David Yates was looking for some new employment and settled on a new adaptation of Edgar Rice Burrough‘s Tarzan. Now that he has gotten the deal that he wanted, Yates is looking for some actors to take on the role and he has already settled on rising stars like Henry Cavill, Charlie Hunnam, Alexander SkarsgÃ¥rd, and Tom Hardy for the lead role.

Vulture reports that Yates committed to the project on Monday and is meeting with the aforementioned names soon. Hardy seems like a shoe in for the role since he had some big roles in Inception and The Dark Knight Rises, but Charlie Hunnam also has a role in Pacific Rim, and Henry Cavill plays as Superman in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, both pics are under the WB name. I imagine that WB wants to get the ball rolling on this project sooner rather than later and might not want to wait on the results of Pacific Rim and Man of Steel.

No word yet on when the film could actually begin production, but word is that Tarzan has been under development for a few years under the watch of Ocean’s Eleven producer Jerry Weintraub. The film has recently attracted the attention of Hustle & Flow director Craig Brewer. But it makes sense that WB would give the job as director to Yates considering he was able to make a lot of money for WB with the Harry Potter films.

But what are your thoughts on Yates committing to a new big-screen adaptation of Tarzan?
