With True Blood ending, Alexander Skarsgard wasted no time sinking his teeth into playing an iconic character – Tarzan.
Last year, news came out that Tarzan will be getting a reboot, with rumours circulating as to who will join the cast and what the plot will be. Few days ago, Skarsgard, sat down to confirm some of the stories we have been hearing regarding the plot and the infamous loincloth: “ The movie begins in London in the late 1800s, and he’s already there, he’s been there for about eight years with Jane, and then he goes back to the Congo where he was born and raised with Jane, so at least in the beginning, he’s dressed as a British lord. And then a lot of things happen in Africa, obviously. But no loincloth, no.”
David Yates, who is best known for his fantastic work on Harry Potter, is directing this remake. Alexander Skarsgard is joined by Margot Robbie, Osy Ikhile, Samuel L Jackson, Djimon Hounsou and Christoph Waltz. With that much talent on set, we hope this film will turn out great.
Shooting has just begun in London and is expected to finish at the end of the year.
Tarzan 3D has been given a July 2016 release date.
