Tarzan Swinging Back Into Action With Black Snake Moan Helmer

Tarzan Swinging Back Into Action With <i>Black Snake Moan</i> Helmer

For many of us, the last time we saw ape-man Tarzan in film was the 1999 Disney feature (there were two direct-to-video sequels). That’s a long time to go without watching a dude raised by apes swing from tree to tree, howling like a madman and avoiding civilization wherever and whenever possible. If you share that sentiment, then I have some good news for you: Tarzan is swinging back into action.

Black Snake Moan writer/director Craig Brewer is set to write and direct a new Tarzan film for Warner Bros., Deadline reports. His pitch actually spreads a story out over three films, so we’re looking at a trilogy, assuming this project gets off the ground.

Interestingly, the studio also has another Tarzan flick, with Adam Cozad (Jack Ryan reboot) penning a script for TRON: Legacy helmer Joseph Kosinski to direct. It’s not clear if work on that project will continue, but Deadline describes Brewer’s Tarzan as a “passion project” for the filmmaker. Jerry Weintraub will produce with Alan Riche and Tony Ludwig.
