Del Toro to direct new Tarzan flick?

This is about a month old, but I just ran across it as I was catching up from all the news over the holidays. Variety has reported that Warner Brothers is talking to Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth) about directing a new Tarzan movie. Jerry Weintraub (The Avengers, Ocean's Eleven) would produce and they're talking with John Collee (Master and Commander: Far Side of the World) about writing the script. Apparently, del Toro is interested and sees a fresh take on the character by going back to Edgar Rice Burroughs' original story.

If anyone can pull off a fresh, butt-kicking adaptation of Burroughs' story, it's del Toro (or Peter Jackson). Hope this happens.

Hmm. I'd get behind a del Toro Lovecraft flick too, but I still wanna see his take on Tarzan.

Tarzan may have been done to death, but that doesn't mean that he's ever been done right.
