David Yates' TARZAN Put on Hold

By AMC April 11, 2013

It looks like we might not be seeing a revival of the king of the jungle anytime soon. It's been reported that Warner Bros. has but the kibosh on David Yates version of the famed character "Tarzan". For now, anyway.

It's a shame because I was really looking forward to this production. With Alexander Skarsgard lined up to star as the title character and the always incredible Jessica Chastain locked in as his Jane, this project really seemed to be headed in the right direction.

Word on the street is that Yates is still attached to the production and they are still looking for a 2014 start date. The cause for the delay is said to be due to over-budget predictions and having difficultly getting Jamie Foxx to sign on as the third lead.

Either way, a delay is rarely ever a good thing if a studio is second guessing the potential success of a project.
