tarzan-120308Entertainment Weekly is reporting that director Steven Sommers and writer Stuart Beattie will be ditching the boy-raised-by-apes origin story for a 1930’s-set action film in the style of Pirates of the Caribbean:

The action-adventure icon will trash his loincloth and throw on a pair of khakis for the next big screen take on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic character, who first appeared way back in the Stone Age — er, 1912. Director Stephen Sommers (The Mummy) and screenwriter Stuart Beattie (Australia) are ditching the boy-raised-by-apes origin story for a 1930’s-set romp with a hefty helping of romance: Think Pirates of the Caribbean with buffed-and-tanned actors flying through the jungle and sprinting up trees, parkour-style.
