David Yates To Direct New Tarzan Adaptation, Some Good Guys Up For Lead

Edgar Rice Burroughs has had a bit of a bad year. Disney’s big-budget adaptation of his John Carter of Mars stories hit the cinema screens in March, bounced off and flopped gracelessly onto the floor with a total domestic gross that has yet to exceed $75m.

It seems that another of Burroughs’ most famous works might help him on the path to a comeback. According to Vulture, David Yates has just committed to a big-screen adaptation of Tarzan for Warner Bros., and has apparently already met with a few male actors. The studio are apparently quite keen on Tom Hardy, while Yates is scheduling tea and biscuits with Alexander Skarsgård, Henry Cavill and Charlie Hunnam.

Yates is best known for helming the last four Harry Potter movies, and for British thriller miniseries State of Play.

The director certainly has substantial experience working on novel adaptations, but I’m more interested to find out whivh writer is behind the screenplay. We know that a screenplay by Jack Ryan‘s Adam Cozad currently exists, but not whether this will be the one to make it to the screen.

I’m also hoping that there’ll be a lot of Phil Collins in the soundtrack for this one.
