Tarzan the pirate?

Dec. 4, 2008by: Omar Aviles

Tarzan 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?

Extra Tidbit: Created by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Tarzan first appeared in the novel "Tarzan of the Apes" in 1912.

Where's George of the Jungle?

Let me guess, they've got Johnny Depp in mind for this? Why not remake Sheena with a touch of Barb Wire? ERB is probably rolling in grave right now. BAD IDEA! LEAVE IT ALONE! GET AN ORIGINAL CONCEPT PU-LEASE! And they wonder why people DL movies off the internet.

Tae K

I'm sorry, but what exactly is a "1930s era PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN style jungle heartthrob". wasn't pirates in the 1800's or something like that?

I'll wait for the trailer before I judge. Jungle parkour sounds awesome.

How will he be a jungle inhabitant AND a functioning pirate?

Also, parkour is cool.

ALSO, what is the deal with the adaptation of Burroughs's "Princess of Mars"? Still happening?
