Kellan Lutz (The Twilight Saga) as Tarzan and Spencer Locke (Resident Evil) as Jane are featured in a trailer for Constantin Film’s motion-capture 3D animated family flick Tarzan 3D.
Directed by Reinhard Klooss from a script he co-wrote with Jessica Postigo (The Mortal Instruments) and Yoni Brenner (Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs), the film is slated to hit theaters in Germany next summer.
This 3D project looks like it belongs in a video game instead of movies and due to a worrisome article about German filmmakers sounds like typical German radical Greens wanting to hijack Tarzan for political propaganda.
An updated Tarzan story set in modern-day Africa about Tarzan as the orphan son of billionaire adventurers who died in a plane crash, leaving him to grow up in the jungle, raised by apes. Meanwhile, Jane is the daughter an African guide and is committed to the conservation and preservation of the African jungle, fighting against the movie’s villain, CEO of Greystoke Energies, a man who took over the company from Tarzan’s deceased parents.
Take a look at the trailer below.
