The 'Twilight Saga' actor brings the famous jungle man to life and takes him into an adventure with a colony of gorillas.
Constantin Film unveils a first look at its motion-caption animation "Tarzan (2013)" in form of a teaser trailer. The video doesn't feature any dialogue or narration, but it showcases the iconic jungle man's adventure with a group of gorillas. Hanging and jumping from tree to tree, the shirtless titular character ends his journey by standing on the top of the tallest tree in the forest and observing the wide landscape around him.
"Twilight Saga" actor Kellan Lutz brings Tarzan to life in the movie. In it, the titular character and his love interest Jane Porter face a mercenary army who is sent by the evil CEO of Greystoke Energies. The villain is the one who took over the company from Tarzan's biological parents after they died in a plane crash.
Starring as Jane is "Detention" actress Spencer Locke, who is also joined in the cast ensemble by Mark Deklin, Jaime Ray Newman, Robert Capron, Trevor St. John, Brian Huskey and Edd Osmond. The family movie is directed, co-written and co-produced by Reinhard Klooss.
Inspired by Edgar Rice Burroughs' classic story, "Tarzan" will be released in 3D format Stateside on July 25, 2013.
