Jessica Chastain is reportedly the "first choice" to play Jane in David Yates' upcoming live-action "Tarzan" movie at Warner Bros. Pictures.

According to the article, the story follows "the jungle boy who is fully assimilated to life in London when Queen Victoria asks him to investigate troubles in the Congo."

Alexander Skarsgard and Samuel L. Jackson have also been linked to the project, but neither is confirmed as yet.

Stephen Sommers and Stuart Beattie penned the script based on Edgar Rice Burroughs' 1912 book "Tarzan of the Apes."
