David Yates' Tarzan "Dead on the Vine"
Just cutting to the chase: Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros is shutting down the production office for David Yates' upcoming Tarzan over concerns about the film's budget and possibly casting issues http://www.deadline.com/2013/04/tarzan-dying-on-the-vine-at-warner-bros/. The article does say that Warners might try again next year to start production and that Yates is still attached to direct. It also says that Jamie Foxx was being courted to take the third lead, probably the same role that Samuel L. Jackson was rumored to be playing. Sorry folks, I had hoped to see a new live-action Tarzan film on the big screen. I guess we better hope that motion capture film is good.
