Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood) takes the reins of the king of the jungle is this reboot directed by David Yates (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) from a screenplay by Adam Cozad (Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit) and Craig Brewer (Black Snake Moan).
In this latest incarnation of the based originally the book series by Edgar Rice Burroughs, an urbanized Tarzan is forced back into the Congo (with his wife Jane – played by The Wolf of Wall Street‘s Margot Robbie – in toe) in order to serve as a trade emissary for England’s parliament. The whole things turns out the shady forcing Tarzan to get to the bottom of it (mostly without a shirt). Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds), Samuel L. Jackson (The Hateful Eight), Djimon Hounsou (Furious 7) and Jim Broadbent (Moulin Rouge!) co-star.
