Tarzan the pirate?
Dec. 4, 2008
When Tarzan once again makes it to the big screen by way of fauxteur Stephen Sommers and veteran scribe Stuart Beattie, he won't be an ape-raised savage with a heart of gold. He'll be a 1930s era PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN style jungle heartthrob with a penchant for parkour. At least that's what the folks over at "Hollywood Insider" are saying and they're usually pretty spot on about these things. Needless to say, this has Jerry Bruckheimer type action epic written all over it, especially with Sommers behind the camera. So what do you guys think about this? Good? Bad? Keep an open mind about it? Or who gives a shit what direction they take Tarzan seeing as how it's Tarzan?
||Created by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Tarzan first appeared in the novel "Tarzan of the Apes" in 1912.
