Frozen Director Confirms That Crazy Tarzan Conspiracy Theory, Sort Of
Stop me if you’ve heard this one: there are some conspiracy theorists out there who think that Walt Disney Animation secretly made Tarzan the long-lost brother of Anna and Elsa from Frozen. That would mean there’s a secret shared cinematic universe of Disney, but what’s the real story behind this theory?

Tarzan Reboot Circles A 2016 Release Date
Tarzan will be released in 3D. A slew of writers worked on the screenplay, including John August, Marianne Wibberley, and Adam Cozad. Warner’s 2016 summer will kick off with Batman-Superman, another blockbuster with no official title yet. Where do we hand in our money?

Margot Robbie Joining David Yates' Tarzan
While Robbie was largely unknown prior to Wolf rolling out, several more are catching on to her rising star, casting her in anticipated parts of upcoming potential blockbusters. Does she have range? Can she help carry a movie like Tarzan? We’ll find out soon enough.

Samuel L. Jackson In Talks To Join Alexander Skarsgard For David Yates' Tarzan
Yates and Co. are hoping to get a greenlight from Warner after offering the studio a five-minute pre-visualization video detailing how the film could work. Something tells me casting one of the more popular character actors in Hollywood will help that along as well.

10 Wonderful Disney Songs That Do Not Get Enough Credit
It’s always the same songs. There are about a dozen beloved, universally recognized classic Disney tracks, and they repeatedly populate, in some order, Top 10 lists, cover version CDs and various productions. I get it.

Emma Stone And Christoph Waltz Up For Tarzan Roles
while Tarzan doesn’t have a Jane just yet, he may have found an adversary, as Variety reports Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz is in talks to join the film. And all of a sudden, I’m “in talks” to be a lot more excited about this movie. Not that the Yates/Skarsgard pair-up isn’t exciting enough, but the project was thrown into turnaround back in April due to budget concerns. It’s nice to see that Waltz is part of the reason it’s swinging back into pre-production planning.

Tarzan, Starring Alexander Skarsgard, Gets The Brakes Thrown On By Warner Bros.
For those who really want to see Skarsgard swinging around the jungle, there is some good news: insiders are saying that there is a possibility that the project could be resurrected in 2014, and Yates remains interested in bringing the Edgar Rice Burroughs character back to the big screen. We'll just have to wait and see if he will ever get the chance.

Is Jessica Chastain Jane To Alexander Skarsgard's Tarzan?
With two Oscars nominations already behind her, not to mention the surprise horror hit Mama, Jessica Chastain pretty much has the world at her feet. Does she really want to wear a loincloth for her next step?

Alexander Skarsgard Could Be Your New Tarzan
The requirements for playing Tarzan aren't especially lengthy, but they are stringent. You must have excellently defined muscles. You must look half decent in a long, stringy wig. And you must be able to bellow the iconic Tarzan scream, preferably while swinging from vines and also wearing a loincloth

David Yates Commits To Tarzan Remake, Eyes Henry Cavill And More For Lead
There's been talk for a while now of the return of Tarzan, the Edgar Rice Burroughs character who has been depicted around 89 times on screen already. Twilight's Kellan Lutz is at work on his own 3D motion-capture version, and Warner Bros. has been developing their take for a while now, at one point attaching Hustle & Flow and Footloose director Craig Brewer

German Trailer For Performance Capture Tarzan 3D, Starring Kellan Lutz
We've heard about a number of Tarzan projects in development over the last couple of years, from the one that Black Snake Moan director Craig Brewer wants to make to the version that Harry Potter filmmaker David Yates is interested in doing. One that may beat them all to the box office, however, is a new motion-capture take starring Kellan Lutz And Spencer Locke.

Harry Potter's David Yates Could Take On Tarzan
An article about screenwriter Adam Cozad notes that the Tarzan film he wrote for Warner Bros. is starting to draw interest from some big-name Hollywood directors. David Yates, Gary Ross and Susanna White are all reportedly "interested" in the project, which the studio is developing

GCB's Mark Deklin Joining Kellan Lutz In Tarzan
With ABC opting not to renew their freshman dramedy GCB, that leaves actor Mark Deklin available to pursue other roles, and it looks like he's found one in Constantin's 3D CGI motion-capture feature Tarzan. Kellan Lutz is set to play the lead in the Reinhard Klooss directed take on the classic Edgar Rice Burroughs tale, which tells the story of a man raised in the jungle by apes.

Kellan Lutz And Spencer Locke To Play Performance-Captured Tarzan And Jane
In this film, Tarzan’s parents are still billionaire adventurers, but instead of being marooned with their child they are now killed in airplane crash. The film’s main antagonist (a la Iron Man) will be the man who takes over as CEO of the family's company Greystoke Energies and plans some anti-environmental acts in the jungle. Jane enters the tale as the daughter of an African guide...

Is The Death Of The Tarzan Chimpanzee A Hoax?
Making this story even stranger is that this wouldn't even be the first time somebody lied about a chimp from the Tarzan films. There was a similar report back in 2008 that was debunked by the Washington Post when it was discovered that the ape that had died that year was only born in 1960. The writer of that debunk, R.D. Rosen, doesn't have much faith in this new story as well, saying, "I''m afraid any chimp who actually shared a soundstage with Weissmuller and O'Sullivan is long gone."

Tarzan's Chimp Companion Cheetah Has Died
Here’s the miraculous part. The 80-year-old Cheetah far outlived the life expectancy of a normal chimp (the average chimp in captivity only reaches age 35 or 40). This accomplishment put Cheetah in the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s oldest non-human primate. Credit the good living of a Hollywood star.

5 More Disney Classics That Should Get 3D Re-Releases, After The Success Of The Lion King 3D
If families will pay to see The Lion King again in 3D, what’s going to stop them from seeing a Shrek film or any past Pixar movies that happened to come out before the 3D craze? That got me thinking. Are there five classic Disney animated features I’d look forward to seeing in 3D? Future re-releases of studio classics seem inevitable at this point. So here are the five Disney animated classics I wouldn’t mind seeing in 3D

Warner Bros. Developing Two Separate Tarzan Projects
While it also points out the complete lack of creativity in today's Hollywood, sometimes it's fun to watch studios develop similarly themed projects at the exact same time. Take, for example, the three way battle between Universal, Relativity Media and Disney to get a version of Snow White into production.
