Margot Robbie eyed for Jane in David Yates’ Tarzan

January 19th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Margot Robbie, who can be seen now on the big screen in The Wolf of Wall Street, is being eyed for the Jane role in Warner Bros.’ reboot of Tarzan, to be directed by David Yates (last four Harry Potter films).

The Wrap reports that she’d appear opposite Alexander Skarsgard (Tarzan), Samuel L. Jackson and Christoph Waltz.

The screenplay is by Stephen Sommers and Stuart Beattie. The live-action film will adapt Edgar Rice Burroughs’ 1912 book Tarzan of the Apes, but is rumored to pick up at a point well past Tarzan’s “origin story,” instead following the hero after having returned to and been assimilated by British civilization of the era. The action will then follow the Burroughs hero on a mission into the Congo under orders from Queen Victoria.
