David Yates Committing to Tarzan -Considering Alexander Skarsgard for Role

Vulture.com posted an exclusive with David Yates. Alex was mentioned as being considered for the role of Tarzan. Excerpt below:

David Yates, the director of the last four Harry Potter films, has finally committed to his next project — and we’re told it will be a big-screen adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’s Tarzan at Warner Bros. Pictures.

No word on its cast — Yates only committed to the project on Monday — but we hear that Yates is meeting with up-and-coming actors like Man of Steel‘s Henry Cavill, Pacific Rim headliner Charlie Hunnam, and True Blood‘s Alexander Skarsgård.

(We also hear that the studio is keen to get a meeting with Tom Hardy, who has put in his time on Warner Bros. blockbusters like The Dark Knight Rises andInception, but less clear is whether Hardy shares the studio’s enthusiasm for that part.)

The project has been in development with Ocean’s Eleven producer Jerry Weintraub for years, most recently (and surreally) attracting Hustle & Flowdirector Craig Brewer. In any event, here’s hoping things goes better than the last Burroughs adaptation to hit the big screen: John Carter, which cost Disney $200 million in losses earlier this year.

Alexander Skarsgard wants to ‘Disconnect’ – Entertainment News, Top News, Media – Variety



Variety just posted this news item:

“True Blood” star Alexander Skarsgard, Frank Grillo, Colin Ford and Swedish thesp Michael Nyqvist are attached to star in Henry Alex Rubin’s indie drama “Disconnect,” while Andrea Riseborough is also circling one of the lead roles.
Rubin, who previously directed the award-winning documentary “Murderball,” makes his feature directorial debut with the film. Andrew Stern (“Return to Me”) wrote the script, which follows a large ensemble of characters who are affected — and in some cases destroyed — by the Internet and other forms of modern communication.

Skarsgard will play a former Marine who’s struggling to make ends meet and is emotionally cut off from his wife, prompting him to seek an affair.

Grillo is in line to play a single father and computer safety expert who’s overprotective of his 15-year-old son and wants to keep him away from the dangers of the online world.

Ford would play Grillo’s son, a skater who deals with his own emotional pain by chatting online with a troubled teen under the guise of being an interested teen girl.

Nyqvist will play a man who Skarsgard and his wife suspect of stealing their identity. for the full article please visit:
