It was announced today via Variety that Warner Brothers and Jerry Weintraub are producing a new take on Tarzan and none less than Guillermo del Toro himself is in talks to direct the film. The screenplay is also in talks to be written by the screenwriter behind Master and Commander and Happy Feet, John Collee. Guillermo had a few words to say about the opportunity:

"I'd love to create a new version that is still a family movie, but as edgy as I can make it," Del Toro said. "There are strong themes of survival of a defenseless child left behind in the most hostile environment."

"John will be writing it alone, as I'll be in production on 'Hellboy 2' and pursuing writing projects of my own," he added. "He's got a great sense of adventure and the wilderness."

You know, I really hate Tarzan, but anything Guillermo does, I am instantly there. So we'll see… we have to go through Hellboy 2 first!
