Kellan Lutz Spencer Locke

We've come a long way since Johnny Weismuller (look him up kids). It's the new millenium and we're gonna get a new Tarzan and Jane to swing on a vine into the multiplex.

Deadline reports that Kellan Lutz aka Emmett Cullen, is now signed up to lead "Tarzan." Guess David Cronenberg and David Michod weren't returning his calls (ouch, burn sauce!). Meanwhile, Spencer Locke, who is probably best known for her role in "Resident Evil: Afterlife" is in talks for Jane. Excited yet? Well it gets better/worse. Backers Constantin are gonna be spending some bucks on this to make it mo-cap with animated CGI for some reason. Maybe Lutz's pecs will look better or be improved via digital trickery? Anyway, Reinhard Klooss (never heard of him) is directing and he co-wrote the script with Jessica Postigo ("The Mortal Instruments") and Yoni Brenner ("Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs").

Now, don't get this confused with the Warner Bros. project that has Craig Brewer attached to direct in what could be a potential trilogy. As we already know, competing projects are de riguer in Hollywood and we can't imagine WB are too worried by this one. At all.
