Jessica Chastain Up For "Tarzan"
It's been a while since we've had news on this film. To recap: Last November Warner Bros announced that Harry Potter director David Yates had taken the director's chair for their new big budget Tarzan. That was followed by news that Yates had zeroed in on True Blood star Alexander Skarsgard for Tarzan and Samuel L. Jackson for a supporting role. Well now the New York Post is reporting that actress Jessica Chastain (recently Oscar nominated for Zero Dark Thirty) is Yates and the studio's top pick to play Jane Clayton for the film, which according to the report finds Tarzan assimilated into British society but returning to the Congo at the request of Queen Victoria.
