Sommers and Beattie on Tarzan
Stephen Sommers is going to be directing Tarzan, no really he is.
Actually he's in negotiations so there's a chance he still might not direct it, however the fact that Stuart Beattie is adapting the script from the Edgar Rice Burroughs story is exciting, Beattie wrote Collateral, 30 Days of Nights, and the Pirates of the Caribbean series.
Previously we heard Guillermo del Toro had been looking to direct a script written by John Collee who had written Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World but del Toro is a tad busy so it's onto pastures new.
Personally I would have thought a darker more fantastical version of the story from del Toro would have been better, and then Hollywood could have shouted about a reimagining of the story and a return to the origins and all that rubbish.
