Greenlight for David Yates' Tarzan! Release date July of 2016!

Finally, after months in development, Warner Bros officially greenlit David Yates' Tarzan (his first movie since the last four Harry Potter!). The movie will be released in July of 2016, with Alexander Skarsgard as Tarzan, Margot Robbie as Jane, Samuel L. Jackson in the part of Tarzan's sidekick and Christoph Waltz as the opposition. A 5 Stars Cast, a renowned director, a budget without a doubt substantial, here is a golden opportunity for a Tarzan we didn't heard of on the big screen as a live-action... [Lire la suite]

Tarzan by David Yates, yes or no?

It's been more than a year now that the director of the last four Harry Potter movies is developing for Warner Bros a new adaptation of the Tarzan adventures. What is known: - Pre-production for the movie was launched, then stopped by Warner (budgetary concern?). Apparently, it has been relaunched somewhat. Many actors name have been spoken since, even if officially, the movie hasn't been confirmed! - Tarzan will be played by Alexander Skarsgard, David Yates chose this actor since the beginning. - Samuel L. Jackson will... [Lire la suite]

The adaptations of Edgar Rice Burroughs' works besides Tarzan have always been sparse. For John Carter, there are comic strips signed by John Coleman Burroughs (1939 to 1941), three issues drawn by Jesse Marsh adapting in accelerated fashion the first three novels (1952-1953), some issues at DC Comics (1972-1976) which will also see some adaptations of Carson of Venus and Pellucidar, as well as adventures featuring Tarzan's son, Korak, then the first Marvel period (1977-1979), and then...

Awesome painting of Tarzan!

The painting was made by Cynthia Sheppard, and here are the links first of her blog, and of Thejohncarterfiles which relayed it: http://sheppard-arts.blogspot.fr/search?q=tarzan+light+of+knowledge http://thejohncarterfiles.com/2013/08/tarzan-and-the-light-of-knowledge-by-cynthia-sheppard-is-just-brilliant/ Rarely an illustration has succeeded in capturing in such manner the character of Tarzan as described in the novels of Edgar Rice Burroughs: his noble beauty, as well as his ape nature (the twisted...

What’s so special about this Tarzan?

Since Tarzan has become a myth, it was one of these characters I’ve always known all my life. As a child, I watched the cartoons and movies, but he never impassioned me as other characters could. Admittedly Burne Hogart’s drawings were impressive, the films with Johnny Weissmuller entertaining, but Tarzan himself appeared terribly insipid to me. Even Superman, which also had a boy-scout reputation, seemed more interesting with his hidden identity and his adventures worthy of the most outrageous science fiction. But the adventures in...
