Variety reports that Samuel L. Jackson is now in talks to co-star with Alexander Skarsgard in Warner Bros.' upcoming Tarzan reboot. Christoph Waltz is also likely to take on a role, while the site adds that, "Plot details are still vague on how this version will be interpreted." What we do know is that it will be directed by Harry Potter helmer David Yates, and Jackson entering the fray apparently, "comes as good news for a project that has been fighting for a greenlight for sometime now. A week before the Thanksgiving holiday, studio execs viewed a five minute pre-viz video Yates and his team created to explain how the film could turn out." While the delay may seem like a bad thing, it's proven to be the opposite as Jackson was originally forced to pass on a role he's shown interest in since day one. That's what prompted them to turn to Jamie Foxx, but the delay did mean he had to pass. Sources also tell Variety that The Wolf of Wall Street actress Margot Robbie is the top choice to play Jane, but an offer is not yet in place. What do you guys think?
