Jessica Chastain Eyed for Jane in TARZAN

One of the most beautiful and talented red-heads in the industry, Jessica Chastain, has certainly become the "it" girl overnight. And for good reason. Having starred and dazzled in such films as "The Help" and recently "Zero Dark Thirty", Chastain has more than proven she can tackle any subject matter with grace.

The actress is now being eyed as the first choice to star as Jane in David Yates' live-action "Tarzan". Rumor has it that Alexander Skarsgard and Samuel L. Jackson have also been eyed for the project but nothing has been confirmed yet.

Stephen Sommers and Stuart Beattie penned the script for "Tarzan", which was based on Edgar Rice Burroughs' 1912 book "Tarzan of the Apes." The film will explore how John Clayton III (known as Tarzan) is ordered by Queen Victoria to investigate the current state of the Congo. With the help of his friend Williams, they soon discover that a fierce warlord is controlling the massive diamond mine, and so the adventure begins.

Do you think Chastain would be a good fit for Jane? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
