Vulture is reporting that David Yates, who directed the last four "Harry Potter" films, has committed to helm the new Tarzan movie at Warner Bros. Pictures. They also posted a bit on possible candidates for the title role:

No word on its cast — Yates only committed to the project on Monday — but we hear that Yates is meeting with up-and-coming actors like Man of Steel's Henry Cavill, Pacific Rim headliner Charlie Hunnam, and True Blood's Alexander Skarsgård.

(We also hear that the studio is keen to get a meeting with Tom Hardy, who has put in his time on Warner Bros. blockbusters like The Dark Knight Rises and Inception, but less clear is whether Hardy shares the studio’s enthusiasm for that part.)


The project has been in the works for some time. Craig Brewer was most recently attached to direct.
