If you’re going to re-tell a famous story like Tarzan in this day and age, you’re going to have to go big. Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures look to be delivering up just that; with Harry Potter director David Yates and an all-star cast that includes Oscar nominee Samuel L. Jackson, Oscar nominee Djimon Hounsou, Oscar nominee John Hurt, Oscar winner Jim Broadbent, two-time Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz, Margot Robbie and Alexander Skarsgård as Tarzan.

Beside all that Oscar power at play, The Legend Of Tarzan is at epic proportions in the cinematic and CGI department without a doubt. The teaser trailer released by Warner Bros. Pictures is more than enough to get fans of both the story and the work of David Yates super excited.

Yates knows just how to bring great stories to life on the big screen, having directed the final four films in the Harry Potter film series. A job he did so well, the English filmmaker and director was chosen to take up the duties again in the upcoming prequel to Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

To play the man of the jungle, you’ve got to have certain physical qualifications. It appears by the look of the movie stills released thus far, that 39 year old Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgård meets those and more. The Stockholm born actor is best known for his role as as vampire Eric Northman on the HBO series True Blood.

The Legend of Tarzan synopsis:

It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Skarsgård) left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane (Robbie) at his side. Now, he has been invited back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament, unaware that he is a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by the Belgian, Captain Leon Rom (Waltz). But those behind the murderous plot have no idea what they are about to unleash.
