A few days ago a short list has been released about the “Tarzan” remake that Warner Bros. has been working on. Henry Cavill, Sons Of Anarcy” star Charlie Hunnam, “True Blood” fang banger Alexander Skarsgard and “Dark Knight Rises” Tom Hardy was named to be meeting Yates to discuss the lead role.
But it seems the favorite of David Yates and Warner Bros. isn’t your Man of Steel, but Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgård.
As Variety notes, there is no offer and a casting decision hasn’t been made so there’s still hope for those who want to see Henry as the King of the Jungle! So should this all come to pass, Skarsgård will play John Clayton III, who gets reassimilated into society only to be asked by Queen Victoria to investigate some strange things going on in the Congo. At his side? Civil War veteran George Washington Williams, a role that Samuel L. Jackson is being eyed for.
What do you think?
