Skarsgard wanted for Tarzan role

November 15th, 2012 by bash Comments

Variety are reporting that David Yates wants True Blood star Alexander Skarsgard to slip into the loin cloth of Edgar Rice Burrough’s iconic jungle hero Tarzan.

The director will helm an adaptation of Burrough’s 1912 book ‘Tarzan of the Apes’ from a screenplay by Stephen Sommers and Stuart Beattie.

Samuel L. Jackson is also believed to be up for a role in the live action film as Williams (an original character for the film), a Civil War veteran seeking redemption for his part in atrocities committed against Native Americans.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
