Con­stan­tin Film has announced cast­ing of their pend­ing pro­duc­tion of the clas­sic Edgar Rice Bur­roughs story of Tarzan. Kel­lan Lutz, late of the Twi­light saga, has been cast to star as the title char­ac­ter. Spencer Locke, most recently appear­ing as K-Mart in Constantin’s Res­i­dent Evil movies, will star as the new Jane Porter.

Con­stan­tin Film’s pro­duc­tion will be motion-capture 3D com­puter gen­er­ated ani­ma­tion. Warner Bros. has also recently been mak­ing noise about an adap­tion of the clas­sic story. All this despite the recent big fail­ure of another Bur­roughs’ char­ac­ter over at Dis­ney with their John Carter film.

Rein­hard Klooss and Hol­ger Tappe are co-directing the ani­mated fea­ture. Klooss also co-wrote the script with Yoni Bren­ner and Jes­sica Postigo, and is pro­duc­ing the film with Robert Kulzer.
