Kellan Lutz has boarded Constantin Film's Tarzan to play the title character, with and Spencer Locke set to play Jane. The film will be a performance-capture 3D production.

Reinhard Klooss, Yoni Brenner and Jessica Postigo adapted the script from Edgar Rice Burroughs' original story, while giving it a modern-day twist.

In the update, Tarzan's parents are killed in an airplane crash rather than being stranded with their child. Jane is the daughter of an African guide and is committed to the conservation and preservation of the African jungle. The film's bad guy is the CEO of Greystoke Energies, a man who took over the company from Tarzan's deceased parents. Tarzan and Jane eventually work together to defeat the mercenary army of Greystoke Energies.

Reinhard Klooss and Holger Tappe are directing with Robert Kulzer producing.
