David Yates Confirmed To Direct Warner Bros.' TARZAN Adaptation

David Yates, who previously helmed the last four Harry Potter films for WB, has officially committed to the studio's Tarzan adaptation, which is said to be the director's next project. Additionally, Yates is meeting with up-and-coming actors such as Henry "Superman" Cavill.



After spending several years in development with producer Jerry Weintraub (Ocean's Eleven) attached, Warner Bros.' big screen adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan finally has a director. According to Vulture, David Yates, who previously worked with WB on the last four Harry Potter movies, committed to the adaptation (which is said to be his next project) earlier this week. Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow) was previously interested in Tarzan before backing out. As for who may be playing the King of the Jungle, Vulture say that Yates is meeting with some up-and-coming actors such as Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood), Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim) and Henry Cavill (Man Of Steel). Additionally, WB want to have a meeting with Tom Hardy after the actor worked with the studio on Christopher Nolan's Inception and The Dark Knight Rises, but whether or not Hardy is interested in the project is currently unknown. Who do you want to see play Tarzan?
