    Why would Waltz sign up for such a mundane offering?

    Guys, Waltz personally denied to be in talks for Tarzan or to have any wish to do it, check your facts (The New Yorker Festival Q&A, video on their site). And I doubt he’ll film a movie in LA next week when he is directing an opera in Europe, premièring mid December. Where did tou get this info? Sounds very strange to me.
