Christoph Waltz To Take On “Tarzan”

After a brief shutdown, the “Tarzan” reboot is back on at Warner Bros. Pictures.

Christoph Waltz (“Django Unchained,” “Inglourious Basterds”) is in negotiations to play the villain in ‘Deathly Hallows’ director David Yates’ new live-action take on the classic Edgar Rice Burroughs hero.

Alexander Skarsgard stars as the title character, a man who is raised by apes. Waltz will play Captain Rom, a Belgian soldier who wants to capture Tarzan in exchange for diamonds.

The role of Jane is also being look at right now with Emma Stone and Margot Robbie reportedly being considered for the role.

Adam Cozad penned the most recent script drafts, and should it go ahead it will likely shoot next Summer for a 2015 release.
