Del Toro's Tarzan To Be A Tough, Young Upstart

Guillermo del Toro has been in London for the Baftas, where he collected the 'best foreign language film' mask with Pan's Labyrinth, and most deservedly so. Speaking to various members of the press, he let slip a few bits and pieces about his eventual Tarzan movie, here and there.

"The idea is to try to do a version unlike any other, in the sense that Tarzan's formative years growing through the jungle are incredibly tough and brutal."

"There's always this idyllic sense of the jungle being like a Disney set and I want to portray how this guy becomes the toughest animal in the jungle."

It could be any number of years before this film enters production, so let's try not to let our interest peak too early.
