Alexander Skarsgard: 'Tarzan' Frontrunner for David Yates!

Alexander Skarsgard is reportedly the frontrunner to land the title role in Tarzan, director David Yates‘ upcoming film, according to Variety.

The 36-year-old Swedish actor would play “John Clayton III, known around the world as the famous “ape man” Tarzan. Years after he’s re-assimilated into society, he’s asked by Queen Victoria to investigate the goings-on in the Congo. Tarzan teams with an ex-mercenary named George Washington Williams to save the Congo from a fierce warlord who controls a massive diamond mine.”

Tom Hardy, Henry Cavill, and Charlie Hunnam were all reportedly up for the role in the flick, which will feature Samuel L. Jackson as “Williams, a Civil War veteran eager to redeem himself for his part in the massacre of Native Americans.”
