Diverging from the usual plan of always making anything recognizable in the public domain, Warner Bros. has reportedly shut down production offices on Tarzan, their David yates-directed take on Edgar Rice Burroughs' tale of loincloths. Shooting was scheduled to begin later this year, with Alexander Skarsgard and Jessica Chastain attached to play Tarzan and Jane, and both Jamie Foxx and Samuel L. Jackson rumored to fill the absence of Phil Collins songs. The studio isn't confirming or denying officially, but Deadline's sources say they'll likely try to shoot again next year if they can find ways to cut the budget. My advice? Don't try to skimp on the vines. You can always tell.
