Samuel L. Jackson in Talks for "Tarzan"
OK this is a few hours late but here's the news. Variety is reporting that Samuel L. Jackson has reentered talks to co-star in David Yates' upcoming Tarzan with Alexander Skarsgard as the lord of the jungle and Christoph Waltz as the villain. Jackson had been in talks previously with Warner Bros to star but had to pass when the project was put on hold following budget concerns. Interestingly the article notes that Yates got Warners to give the film the go ahead when he showed them a previsualization test reel that got them excited. The only character left to cast is Jane Porter, with the current front runner rumored being actress Margot Robbie, who will be seen in Martin Scorsese's upcoming The Wolf of Wall Street.
