Alexander Skarsgard is set to trade in his True Blood fangs for a strategically-positioned loincloth, taking the titular role in the upcoming live action film, Tarzan. Joining Skarsgard are Margot Robbie, Samuel L. Jackson, and Christoph Waltz.
David Yates, who directed the last four Harry Potter movies, is set to direct, and Tarzan will be in theaters in summer 2016.
It's been a few generations since Tarzan was played by a real person as opposed to being a cartoon character, but the story of two people from very different worlds coming together to conquer an outside evil and find love in the process has been replicated in movies, TV, and books many times over.
