HitFix: Swinging Through the Jungles of London on a Visit to the Set of “Tarzan”

Legend of Tarzan (Movie)

London – We are here at Warner Bros. Studios, Leavesden, where the Harry Potter films were shot, among other works.  Working at the studio today are a number of people who participated in that legendary franchise.  There is the production designer for all eight films, Stuart Craig; producer of six of them, David Barron; and the director of four (five if you include the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which Craig has also worked on), David Yates.

On this September 2014 day, however, Yates and company aren’t telling some improbable tale of a boy wizard, no, they’re telling the improbable tale of a boy who was raised by animals in the jungle and, as a man, finds himself back in that very same jungle to save the woman he loves.  They are at work on The Legend of Tarzan featuring Alexander Skarsgard as the legendary vine-swinger.  Also appearing in the movie are Margot Robbie as Jane; Christoph Waltz as the villainous Captain Rom; Djimon Hounsou as Chief Mbonga; and Samuel L. Jackson as George Washington Williams, who is working with our hero.
