Reboot of what? There have been many Tarzan movies over the years, some of them sequels to others, but as far as I know there are no Tarzan properties around currently active enough to be "rebooted".

I know I'm going to get hell for this but if I see Samuel L. Jackson in another film... He was great in Die Hard, so not saying he isn't a good actor, but he always seems miscasted, and a huge distraction what ever film he is in. Can't stand him as Agent Fury.

....of course, everyone's tastes differ, but I find him to be a breath of fresh air as Nick Fury... smile

...but, to echo above, a reboot of what? The last Tarzan film I remember was that piece of s**t insult with Casper Van Dien...but it has been nearly 30 years since Tarzan was done properly, so OK, but here's hoping it's done by someone with respect for the source material...there's some good stories already out there.

I'd be totally down for SMILEY'S PEOPLE happening. TINKER TAILOR was outstanding.

THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY---Robert Knepper (PRISON BREAK) will play an original character named Antonius.

So first they drop characters from the books (like the mayor's daughter and - from what I've heard - the couple en route to District 13 in the second book) and now they're inventing new ones for the movies?

ANIMATED Anne Frank?

(Actually, already been done, in Japan.)

But that's all we need. Animated Nazis. Animated death camps.

Wild.

(Actually, the Nazis did make animated cartoons, very anti-Semitic, not very well made. Weird.)

Having read most of the Tarzan novels, I would say that Tarzan has never been done properly, although Greystoke came close.

I second that. Hopefully this time they might go with a score that is a little closer to the trailer Wolfman track. But yeah, with the same cast and crew, this sounds like a great idea.

Fixed.

Yes sir, I will 3rd that! TTSP was one of my favorite films in years. Low key spy flicks are like manna from heaven for me.
