Margot Robbie Eyed for Jane Role in David Yates’ Tarzan

Margot Robbie Eyed for Jane Role in David Yates’ TarzanMargot Robbie, on the big screen now in The Wolf of Wall Street, is being eyed for the Jane role in Warner Bros.' reboot of Tarzan, to be directed by David Yates (the last four Harry Potter films). TheWrap reports that she'd appear opposite Alexander Skarsgard (in the Tarzan role), Samuel L. Jackson and Christoph Waltz.

Featuring a screenplay by Stephen Sommers and Stuart Beattie, the live-action film will adapt Edgar Rice Burroughs' 1912 book "Tarzan of the Apes," but is rumored to pick up at a point well past Tarzan's "origin story," instead following the hero after having returned to and been assimilated by British civilization of the era. The action will then follow the Burroughs hero on a mission into the Congo under orders from Queen Victoria.

Robbie also appeared in last year's About Time and can be seen coming up in Focus opposite Will Smith.
