Christoph Waltz could be swinging into the jungle, as he is in talks to star in the Tarzan remake.
The Oscar-winning Austrian actor is tipped to play "a military figure that crosses paths with the king of the jungle", reported Variety.
Samuel L Jackson was also rumoured to be playing a former mercenary in the film.
The story of Tarzan has been told on the big screen several times, and there is another film in the works starring Twilight's Kellan Lutz in the title role.
Christoph, who won Oscars for his performances in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained, will next star in Terry Gilliam's sci-fi movie The Zero Theorem. He will also make an appearance in the Muppets sequel, Muppets Most Wanted.
