First there was Lone Ranger then Zorro and now…TARZAN

It seems that Hollywood is really digging up every old franchise they can find. The next “big one” could a new Tarzan trilogy if Craig Brewer (Footloose¬†2011) gets his wish. Warner Bros has hired the writer to direct as well and Brewer says he has a way to spread the idea over 3 films.

Well if we must then who should play the lord if the jungle? Geeks start your engines and submit ideas.

Brewer hopes the first one will be his next directing assignment. Warner Bros, which has been stymied in watching several attempts to relaunch the Edgar Rice Burroughs-created hero die on the vine, separately has screenwriter Adam Cozad working on a script that tells a different version of the man raised by apes in the jungles of Africa from infancy. Cozad’s recent work includes the Jack Ryan reboot and Archangel, the pic that has Tron: Legacy’s Joseph Kosinski attached. How the studio decides which film to make remains to be seen, but clearly Warner Bros is determined to revive a live action Tarzan. This is a passion project for Brewer, who is in demand after directing the remake of Footloose for Paramount, and chose this over other opportunities.
