Wolf of Wall Street's Margot Robbie to star alongside Alexander Skarsgard in Tarzan

Jan. 20, 2014by: Niki Stephens

You cant tell me that the talents of Margot Robbie didnt catch your eye in Martin Scorseses WOLF OF WALL STREET? No, really, she was excellent. This Aussie-born gal had an impressively strong Brooklyn accent throughout the film. Its no wonder that now shes being picked up by whomever can get their hands on her.

For some reason listed as a minor note within talks of another role, Robbie is in negotiations to play Jane in David Yates TARZAN alongside Alexander Skarsgard in the title role. Thats one hot blonde sandwich if you ask me.

Dont worry about them going crazy with the story, Yates will be adapting the Edgar Rice Burroughs series about the classic loin cloth wearing vine swinger. Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson will co-star.

The actress is also set to replace Amanda Seyfried in Z FOR ZACHARIAH. The film adapted from Robert OBriens post-apocalyptic novel centers on the story of "a young woman who believes shes the only survivor after a devastating nuclear event, though she comes to learn she is not alone when two strangers wander onto her farm from the forest." Chris Pine and Chiwetel Ejiofor were already on board.

Up next for Robbie is FOCUS with Will Smith.

Skarsgard doesn't fit image of Tarzan

I think Margot Robbie will make a good Jane, but this casting is not as important as the title role. They've already doomed the picture with Alexander Skarsgard as Tarzan. He doesn't fit the role. Not rugged-looking enough. Too slender and boyish-looking. Who might fit the role? Jason Mamoa might be a good choice. But he's got that tattoo on his left arm. Too bad. He appears to fit the image. They should re-cast this role with someone who looks like Jason Mamoa.

off topic but

she really should play invisible woman in the fantastic 4 reboot. She has the looks and the talent and not to mention sexiness to play the part.

Could be good

I must say I thought her accent was very good, but I could still hear some Aussie in her. Guess thats because I am too. Still, great job she did; she obviously has huge things to come. My stepfathers best friends wife is friends with Robbies mum and they took Robbies grandparents to see About Time when it came out in Australia before Christmas. I asked them if they were gonna take them to Wolf of Wall Street but I think seeing their granddaughter in Wolf would of given them a heart attack.

Well, at least they have a somewhat thoughtful director

I'm really partial to the Greystoke adaptation from the 80s. It's probably Lambert's best job acting I've seen, and it's a pretty heartbreaking story. I'm hoping that this goes more in that direction, and less in the yodeling before a CGI-enhanced vine swing-fest. And if you haven't seen Greystoke, definitely check it out.

I agree with almost everything you said. Except your praise of Lambert. He was one of the worst casting choices I have ever seen.

LET'S START a petition to get her cast as The Invisible Woman in the next FF movie.

Comic book movies from Marvel dont count Conz ;)

More big budget movies about characters...

no one gives a rats ass about anymore, please! Also, if you can, cast a lead that the majority of people have never heard of! John Carter, The Lone Ranger, Tarzan! How about another Zorro? Just throwing away money. That being said, she's beautiful and acted her ass off in Wolf... that's all I've got.

Thumb up, you said it well.

Tin Tin, Green Hornet added to that list.

If your counting reboots the list just got a lot bigger.

You don't exactly make yourself clear, but it looks like you're saying who gives a rats ass about a new Tarzan movie.(?) It's time for a new tarzan movie. One that is completely different from any of those that came before. A movie that is based on the original material by Edgar Rice Burroughs. And a new film Tarzan who looks like Tarzan. Alexander Skarsgard is not the guy.

She was great in Wolf of Wall Street and I am excited to see what she can bring to a film like this. And Alexander Skarsgaard as Tarzan is perfec casting in my opinion.

If she wears that bikini made out of clothes, I'll pay full price.

Seems like a disaster waiting to happen

Tarzan is justlame. Nothing really interesting about him. They've tried to bring him back before and it's always failed. Seems like a mistake for Robbie to take a role in a film that doesn't scream slam-dunk blockbuster.

This one could be a slam-dunk blockbuster, using CGI, a good script based on original material by Burroughs, a good director and the right actor in the lead role. Alexander Skarsgard is not the right actor. He doesn't fit the role. He doesn't look like Tarzan. One who does is Jason Mamoa. But his arm tattoo would disqualify him.
Past attempts to bring Tarzan back to the screen have failed because of poor casting, poor scripts, no CGI and low production values.
It's time, now, for a good
