The latest live-action film adaptation of Edgar Rice Burrough’s “Tarzan” will have True Blood star Alexander Skarsgard reprising the title role. Others confirmed to be in the cast include Margot Robbie as “Jane Porter,” Christoph Waltz as the Belgian villain, “Captain Leon Rom,” Djimon Hounsou as “Chief Mbonga,” Samuel L. Jackson as ex-mercenary “George Washington Williams,” and Osy Ikhile in a key supporting role.
The Warner Brothers production of the movie, which will be in 3D, is being directed by David Yates (of Harry Potter fame) based on a screenplay written by Stuart Beattie, Craig Brewer, John Collee and Adam Cozad. Cinematography will be done by Henry Braham and editing by Mark Day. Shooting started June 30 this year. The film is scheduled for release to US theaters on July 1, 2016.
According to the plot summary, Tarzan will have already taken his place in civilized British society as John Clayton III, the Lord Greystoke. He will also have already been married to Jane. He will be invited back to Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament. There, while investigating suspicious activities at a mining camp, he realizes that he has become a pawn in a deadly game of greed and revenge that is being orchestrated by Captain Rom. Tarzan will then team up with the former mercenary Williams to rescue the proverbial damsel in distress, serve justice jungle-style, clobber the bad guys and otherwise save the day. As is expected, there should be non-stop action.
Margot Robbie is undeniably beautiful—but she’s so much more than that.
“In my big group of girlfriends at home, I am definitely not the best-looking,” the 24-year-old Australian actress says in the August 2014 issue of Vanity Fair. “I did not grow up feeling like I was particularly attractive. You should have seen me at 14, with braces and glasses, gangly and doing ballet! If I looked good in Wolf of Wall Street I cannot take full credit; it was because of hair extensions and makeup.”
Martin Scorsese’s casting director, Ellen Lewis, brought Robbie to the director’s attention for The Wolf of Wall Street. She sums up the actress’ appeal such: “As beautiful as she is, that’s how talented she is.”
Robbie comes from a farming family, and she didn’t break into acting until her late teens. Luckily, she has a natural presence onscreen, according to those who’ve worked with her. Given that her home country has produced stars like Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe, could she be the next big thing?

McDonald’s is not usually on the menu for in-demand Hollywood actresses.
But Margot Robbie proved that she is in a league of her own as she was spotted wandering out of the fast food eatery in London chowing down on a cheeseburger and ice cream on Monday.
The down-to-earth Australian star, who turned 24 last week, was a natural beauty with zero makeup as she picked up the snack with a male friend.
Margot was casual but elegant on her food dash, with her full length animal print garment featuring a sizeable slit up the middle.
She covered it up with a snug grey sweater and teamed the entire ensemble with cute slip-on shoes featuring bones printed on the front, adding yet another primal aspect to the equation.
She wore her blonde tresses pulled back into a messy bun and forewent any need for makeup, thus proving her natural beauty.
The Wolf Of Wall Street actress carried all her essentials in a brown leather handbag for the outing and clutched her take away food in a large paper bag from the restaurant.
She was not alone for the delicious adventure, however, as a male pal joined her.
The duo were spotted knocking back burgers inside McDonald’s before exiting the place, immersed in conversation.
Margot treated herself to a little desert in the form of ice cream in a cup, clutching this as she exited the place.
It was a well deserved break, as the star has been in the midst of filming her latest flick, Tarzan, directed by David Yates.
She stars as Jane Porter opposite Alexander Skarsgard’s Tarzan, with other cast members including Samuel L. Jackson and Christopher Waltz.
Margot recently gushed to Digital Spy about how much her co-star’s muscles impress her.
‘He’s really big,’ Margot said of Alexander. ‘I look like a hobbit next to him.’
‘We were doing camera tests the other day and my fingertips were literally at his kneecaps. I think every girl on set is swooning.’
Today (in Australia) was Margot Robbies 24th Birthday!
So from me and the fans, we hope you have a wonderful birthday Margot, wherever you are in the world! Best wishes for the future.x
I thought it was waaaaayyyy overdue and considering I was going to do this at the beginning of the year I finally have a new theme up! Its been a busy year tho, I hope you enjoy the new theme and hopefully soon some more photos will be added to the gallery in the next week or two.
Margot Robbie’s mother says she’s disappointed news that her actress daughter paid off her entire mortgage have been made public.
The Wolf of Wall Street star gave mum Sarie Kessler a memorable 60th birthday gift by paying off the Gold Coast property.
Her brother Lockie posted a picture of his mother and sister toasting to the good news to his Instagram account on Sunday.
But he might be in trouble for it.
“I was really disappointed it ended up on social media,” Kessler told the Gold Coast Bulletin.
“It was a personal present.”
Kessler said she tried to convince her 23-year-old daughter to skip a trip home for the occasion, given her busy acting schedule.
“It was definitely the best day ever,” Kessler said.
Robbie has booked a number of films since appearing in Martin Scorsese’s Oscar-nominated film, including a big-screen take on Tarzan.
She’ll play Jane Porter to True Blood hunk Alexander Skarsgard’s Tarzan
She famously appeared in a full-frontal nude scene opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in the Wolf Of Wall Street but Margot Robbie was the epitome of sophisticated glamour at a London charity fashion ball.
Wafting into Natural History Museum in a floor-length blue and white gown, the 23-year-old Australian actress turned heads as she paraded a stunning A-line gown on Sunday.
Twisting and twirling as flashbulbs popped, the flame-haired star was the centre of attention in the two-tiered ensemble.
She joined a litany of stars including Samuel L Jackson who hosted the charity ball with catwalk show featuring comedian David Walliams and Tom Hiddleston as models.
Margot stood out at the fashion ball, with proceeds benefitting One For The Boys male cancer foundation, as she enjoyed some well-earned down-time in London.
Days earlier, she was spotted out and about in the capital strolling with a handsome mystery man and kissing in the street oblivious to the lunchtime crowds.
Robbie started 2014 as the extremely memorable blonde bombshell from The Wolf of Wall Street, making a major splash on the Golden Globes red carpet in a pristine white Gucci gown that offset both her angelic blonde locks and killer body. By the end of January, however, Robbie had traded her golden locks for a more subdued brunette hue for her role in Z for Zachariah. At the time, she wrote on social media, “She ain’t a Duchess no more!” and “I’m now officially a brunette and spent the day milking cows and driving tractors!”
She then took her brunette do — much more glammed up and glossy than in her WhoSay snap — to the Oscars, where she told us “I feel very mysterious as a brunette!” She also confessed to enjoying the new hue so much, she might stick with it for a while — “I’ll wait until I know what my next movie is,” she said at the time.
According to IMDB, Robbie’s next film is Tarzan (though she hasn’t started shooting yet), so either Jane Porter has gone ginger, or this is just a half-step in between Robbie’s darker do and her return to blonde. We’re loving it on her, though (especially with that mod ’60s vibe she’s rocking), so here’s hoping she hangs on to that McAdams mantle for a bit.
She hasn’t been living in London very long, but Australian actress Margot Robbie is clearly at home in the capital.
The 23 year-old star was spotted out in the city centre on Friday where she showed off her burgeoning group of friends – and impressive dance moves.
She couldn’t resist partying in the street as they enjoyed the mild weather.
The brunette beauty looked stylish in a grey coat and knee-high, black, suede boots. She wore her hair in a casual side-parting and make-up was kept to a minimum.
She accessorised with a white blouse and a pair of skinny jeans.
Together, she cut a stylish figure showing a natural affinity with European fashion trends.
The Gold Coast-born starlet recently moved to London after finishing filming sci-fi flick Z For Zachariah in New Zealand.
So far she certainly seems to be enjoying it as on Saturday, Margot shared some of her fun with Instagram followers with a picture of her in a green field with the caption: ‘No filter. London is just that pretty today.’
Margot also revealed to AOL recently that she’ll be going back to blonde for her upcoming role as Jane Porter in Tarzan.
