‘Tarzan’ to Swing Into Theaters July 1, 2016

With deals now closed for its ensemble, Warner Bros. has slated its reboot of “Tarzan” to bow on July 1, 2016.

Alexander Skarsgard is set to star as the King of the Jungle and Margot Robbie is on board to play Jane. Samuel L. Jackson and Christoph Waltz are also on board to co-star.

David Yates is helming the pic. Plot details are still vague but the film will be released in 3D.

A bigscreen adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ series of novels, “Tarzan” is produced by Jerry Weintraub and Alan Riche, with Mike Richardson and Yates exec producing. Numerous scribes worked on the script, including John August, Marianne Wibberley and, most recently, Adam Cozad.

Jesse Ehrman will oversee for Warner Bros.

Warner Bros. is already seeing this as a big summer with the untitled Superman-Batman movie set to open on May 6, 2016.
