Jessica Chastain Reportedly Wanted To Play Jane In Warner Bros.' TARZAN Movie
Oscar nominated actress Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) is reportedly the top choice to play Jane Porter in director David Yates' Tarzan film, which may star Alexander Skarsgard and Samuel L. Jackson.
It's been a while since there has been an update on Warner Bros.' upcoming reimagining of Tarzan, which will be directed by David Yates (Harry Potter). Last we heard, True Blood's Alexander Skarsgard was the frontrunner to play the titular character, while The Avengers' Samuel L. Jackson was being considered for the role of ex-mercenary George Washington Williams. However, neither actor has been officially confirmed for the film. Now, we may have our first candidate for the role of Jane Porter, Tarzan's love interest. According to NY Post, Jessica Chastain (who was recently nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for her critically acclaimed performance in Zero Dark Thirty) is said to be the top choice to play the character. No other mention is made of other potential candidates, but stay tuned to CBM for more news as we have it. Do you think Chastain would be a good choice to play Jane Porter? Below is a plot synopsis for Tarzan.
John Clayton III [is] known around the world as the famous "ape man" Tarzan. Years after he's re-assimilated into society, he's asked by Queen Victoria to investigate the goings-on in the Congo. Tarzan teams with an ex-mercenary named George Washington Williams to save the Congo from a fierce warlord who controls a massive diamond mine.
