Lutz & Locke Join Mo-Cap “Tarzan”

“Twilight” hunk Kellan Lutz and “Resident Evil” actress Spencer Locke have been cast in a performance-capture 3D feature re-imagining of “Tarzan” for Constantin Film says Heat Vision.

The story updates the classic Edgar Rice Burroughs jungle hero. In this version Tarzan’s parents are billionaire adventurers who are killed in an airplane crash.

Jane Porter meanwhile is the daughter of an African guide and committed to conservation of the African jungle. She eventually works with Tarzan to defeat the mercenary army of Greystoke Energies led by the film’s villain – the CEO that took over the company after the death of Tarzan’s parents.

Reinhard Klooss and Holger Tappe are helming from a script by Klooss, Yoni Brenner and Jessica Postigo. Kloos and Robert Kulzer will produce.
