Alexander Skarsgard tipped for Tarzan role

Nov 15 2012, 4:14am CST | by

Alexander Skarsgard is tipped to take the lead role in 'Tarzan' ahead of Henry Cavill, Charlie Hunnam and Tom Hardy.

Alexander Skarsgard is tipped to take the lead role in 'Tarzan'.
The 'True Blood' actor has been linked with the role of the heroic adventurer alongside Henry Cavill, Charlie Hunnam and Tom Hardy, but director David Yates is said to have made his casting preference known.
However, Alexander is yet to receive an offer and studio Warner Bros. have not given approval to the film.
The movie - which has been redrafted by Adam Cozad - will see Tarzan, AKA John Clayton III, living back in England after being assimilated back into society.
He is asked by Queen Victoria to travel to the Congo and team up with George Washington Williams, a civil War veteran-turned-mercenary - to tackle a fierce warlord, who has seized control of a huge diamond mine and is threatening to cause trouble.
According to Variety, the filmmaker wants to cast Samuel L. Jackson in the role of the mercenary, but no offers have yet been made.
Jerry Weintraub is set to produce the feature after developing it for several years and though David has taken on the project, reports say Craig Brewer was initially tapped to do the job.
This big screen adaptation will be the second of Edgar Rice Burroughs' classic novel, with the first being the 1999 Disney animation.
In the meantime Henry can be seen playing Superman in next year's movie 'Man of Steel' and Charlie is starring in sci-fi flick 'Pacific Rim' as well as 'Deadfall'.

Margot Robbie May Star in Ghost in the Shell Live-Action Movie

Sep 4 2014 10:49am CDT | Source: beyond hollywood

Hollywood, apparently not having learned its lesson when they attempted to white-washed their live-action take on “Akira” and got their butts handed to them by the Interwebs, is moving on ahead with their live-action take on “Ghost in the Shell” from the boys at Dreamworks. “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders is already onboard to direct, and now The Wrap reports that sources are telling them A ...

Is WOLF OF WALL STREET's Margot Robbie set to play the lead in GHOST IN THE SHELL?!

Sep 3 2014 8:40pm CDT | Source: aintitcool

She'd presumably play the Motoko Kusanagi role in Rupert Sanders' adaptation. Read the full article on AICN We knew that SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNSTMAN director Rupert Sanders was working on a GHOST IN THE SHELL adaptation, but we had no idea who he wanted to play the American version of cyberwarrior Motoko Kusanagi.   Surprisingly, he's going with more of an up-and-comer than a bonafide movie star: Margot Robbie.   The WOLF OF WALL STREET actress is ...

Review: The Giver: Sometimes beautiful, but hugely flawed

Aug 14 2014 6:26pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

Let me preface this up front with saying that I have never read Lois Lowry's The Giver, not even in elementary school where books like this were a standard part of the curriculum. Despite that, I really wanted to like the movie adaptation. I knew it deviated fairly heavily from the original story, of which I was ignorant, and went into it knowing only the summary of the story. Let me repeat again: I really, truly wanted to li ...

THE GIVER Clip: Hologram Taylor Swift Plays Piano

Aug 9 2014 10:44am CDT | Source: Collider

The Weinstein Company has released a new The Giver clip from director Philip Noyce’s adaptation of the Lois Lowry novel, this time featuring Taylor Swift.  I’m still not sure what to make of the film as a whole.  I read the book as a kid and enjoyed it immensely, but it’s been marketed heavily as a kind of Hunger Games riff.  I’m not sure if this is simply a case of getting audiences into the theater or if the trailers are real ...
