Will Tom Hardy strip down for the Tarzan reboot?  Count on it, is what sources are saying.  Variety recently reported that David Yates, best known for directing the last four Harry Potter movies, will be directing the upcoming Tarzan reboot.  The project has been in development for a really long time under Jerry Weinstraub, who is also known for producing the Ocean’s Eleven movies.
 
 
Warner Brothers has a first look deal with Tom Hardy, but it’s not clear whether he’s interested in a project like this.  Regardless of whether he’s interested or not, he’s reportedly at the top of WB’s wish list for the titular character of Tarzan.  Other names also on the list are said to be True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgard, Sons of Anarchy’s Charlie Hunnam, and Superman’s Henry Cavill.  It’s still not certain which direction the reboot could go in – whether WB will decide to act a lesser known actor for cheaper (a strategy they’re employing in their Arthur & Lancelot film), or whether they will bring in a proven box office draw like Hardy for more.  
 
Another important question is whether a Tarzan film would prove to be financially lucrative at the box office – we know that people will see famous actors in movies, but only movies that they want to see.  For example, Hardy’s ‘Warrior’ underperformed by a huge margin at the box office, but the Dark Knight Rises broke box office records.

Of course, both films had different fanbases and Batman already has a huge built in fan audience.  Tarzan could go a similar way – bring in a strong actor and make it a gritty remake, and voila – you may have yourself a box office bonanza.
