Alexander Skarsgard and Margot Robbie’s ‘Tarzan’ to Hit Theaters in July 2016

Warner Bros is finally moving ahead with their Tarzan film, which stars True Blood‘s Alexander Skarsgard as the lead, Wolf of Wall Street‘s Margot Robbie as Jane, Oscar-winner Christoph Waltz as the bad guy and Samuel L. Jackson as a friend of the hero.

David Yates, he director of the final four Harry Potter films has finally locked in the studio as the film gets an official release in 2016.

Tarzan will tell the familiar tale of the eponymous hero, orphaned as a baby and raised in the jungle, who returns to urban London as a man. Jerry Weintraub, David Barron and Alan Riche are producing.

The July 1, 2016 release date currently positions Tarzan against Sony’s Angry Birds and Fox’s Independence Day 2.
