- TARZAN TRILOGY
The lord of the jungle is coming back to the big screen courtesy of the director of Black Snake Moan and Hustle & Flow.
Deadline reports that previously mentioned contender Craig Brewer has now closed his deal to write and direct Warner Bros.' big screen revamp of Tarzan, which the filmmaker and studio foresee as a trilogy. Jerry Weintraub will produce.
The studio recently commissioned dueling Tarzan scripts, one by Brewer and another by Adam Cozad, but Deadline says Warners has yet to decide which script to actually make.
The site also adds that Tarzan is a "passion project" for Brewer.
