THE LEGEND OF TARZAN is an upcoming 2016 action adventure film directed by David Yates (the final four Harry Potter films, upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) and written by Adam Cozad and Craig Brewer. The film starring Alexander Skarsgård (HBO’s True Blood) as the legendary character created by Edgar Rice Burroughs, along with Samuel L. Jackson, Margot Robbie, Djimon Hounsou, John Hurt, Jim Broadbent, and Christoph Waltz.
It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Skarsgård) left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane (Robbie) at his side. Now, he has been invited back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament, unaware that he is a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by the Belgian, Captain Leon Rom (Waltz). But those behind the murderous plot have no idea what they are about to unleash.
