Alexander Skarsgard To Star In Upcoming ‘Tarzan’

February 11th, 2014 // Leave a Comment

Alexander Skarsgard was spotted grabbing sushi for lunch in West Hollywood, but perhaps the star should be eating a more plant based diet to get inspired for the new movie he is slated to star in.

Warner Bros. recently announced that they will be making a live action version of the classic movie Tarzan, and Alexander Skarsgard will be playing the beloved ape man lead character. Tarzan never actually wears a shirt (or pants for that matter) right? I can’t wait to see this movie. 

Recent break out actress from Wolf Of Wall Street Margot Robbie is set to star alongside Alexander as love interest Jane. Other big names that will appear in the anticipated movie are Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson. So basically an all star cast. One of my favorite childhood movies brought to life with a cast of terrific actors? What a great day.

David Yates, who directed the last four Harry Potter movies, will be directing the film. Perfect. Everyone involved is extremely excited to get the ball rolling on this project.

“Tarzan has been an enduring and enigmatic figure in literature and cinema for more than a century. The adventures of a man who was torn between two worlds has entertained and intrigued people young and old, and we are excited to bring him to the screen for a new generation.” I have to say, I’m just as excited. Bring on the shirtless jungle man.
