Entering in to the world of 3D animation is the classic character Tarzan who would be brought to the eyes of the fans by the German studio Constantin Film. It is reported that despite its German roots the flick would be in English language and would be produced by Robert Kulzer and Reinhard Klooss.
This studio which is best known for films in the Resident Evil and Fantastic Four franchises, acquired the rights to the film from Edgar Rice Burroughs who wrote the first novel in the series Tarzan of the Apes in 1912 and also its sequels and others including the 1932 film Tarzan The Ape Man starring Johnny Weissmuller.
Meanwhile Constantin Film is also said to be developing a live action 3D adaptation of a classic literature by the name of The Three Musketeers and wearing the directorial hat for the flick is Paul W.S. Anderson. Considering the successes of Tarzan when its animation was released by Disney back in 1999 that grossed $442 million worldwide the upcoming 3D version is likely to do well
Furthermore, Disney is currently working on an Edgar Rice Burroughs’ live-action flick, John Carter of Mars which set for release in 2012.
