New Tarzan Movie Is In The Works At Sony, But What Does This Mean For A Potential Disney Remake?


While Tarzan has been a staple of literature and pop culture for over 100 years, the character’s popularity certainly isn’t anywhere near the level it was when the original Edgar Rice Burroughs stories were being published and the immediate decades afterwards. In 2016, Warner Bros. Pictures’ brought the Ape Man back to the big screen through The Legend of Tarzan, which stared Alexander Skarsgård, Margot Robbie, Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson, but it failed to hit with audiences. Now it’s been reported that Sony Pictures is developing its own Tarzan movie, but I can’t help wondering what this means for a potential live-action remake of Disney’s animated Tarzan from 1999.

Regarding the Sony update, THR shared that the film studio has picked up the film rights to Tarzan from the Edgar Rice Burroughs estate and is looking to deliver a “total reinvention” of the property. The project doesn’t have a writer, director or producer attached, but Sony is reportedly intends to reimagine Tarzan for moviegoers “in this time and space of the 21st century.” This would certainly be a good way for Sony’s Tarzan movie to stand out from traditional Tarzan stories, which are usually set between the late 1800s and early 1900s, and have a pulp feel to them.
