Will Jessica Chastain play Jane to Alex Skarsgard’s Tarzan? HOT.

Jessica Chastain has been camped out in Paris all week for Fashion Week. When did she become the It Fashion Girl? That’s very interesting, isn’t it? I’m including photos of Jessica from the Louis Vuitton show, the Chanel show, at the Carine Roitfeld party and outside of the Meurice Hotel (where I assume she’s staying). Jessica must have gotten invites to ALL of the Paris fashion shows, which is something that usually happens to only Salma Hayek (and even then, Salma is married to the boss). I think her best look is the black-and-white Chanel look. She just looks comfortable and professional there, I like it.

In other news, the ubiquitous Chastain is rumored to be “the first choice” to play Jane in a live-action version of Tarzan. You know who is probably going to play Tarzan, right? Alexander Skarsgard!! Can you see Chastain as the Victorian lady Jane to Skarsgard’s rugged beast of a Tarzan? Hmm…

Jessica Chastain, Queen of the Jungle? The overworked actress and recent Oscar nominee is said to be the first choice to play Jane in a new version of “Tarzan,” reports The Post’s Richard Johnson.

Alexander Skarsgard is reportedly in the running to play the title character in the Warner Bros. reboot. In this story, the jungle boy is fully assimilated to life in London when Queen Victoria asks him to investigate troubles in the Congo.

Samuel L. Jackson is rumored to play an ex-mercenary who helps Tarzan save the Congo from a vicious warlord. David Yates, who helmed four “Harry Potter” movies, will direct.

Chastain, Skarsgard AND Jackson? Damn. I would watch that. I forget… in the original Tarzan story, does Jane bang Tarzan? I know there’s a lot of sexual tension between the characters, but I forget if they were doing lustful things amongst the jungle and Victorian England. Let me look it up… in the original stories, Tarzan and Jane do get married (but that’s in the sequel book). So, chances are pretty good that if this casting goes down, we’ll see Alex and Jessica get hot and heavy. *takes a shot of tequila, rips off blouse* Let’s do this. I’m down with this pairing. I think Jessica and Alex would be hot together.

Also: Jessica stepped out with her boyfriend Gian Luca Passi yesterday. My reading of their body language? They have one major thing in common: they’re both in love with Gian!

  1. i'm french don't kill me says:

    she refused IRON MAN 3 to accept TARZAN remake? in what world?

    i’m tired to see her this week :she’s in every prestige catwalk of the french Fashion Week since a week

  2. allons -y alonso says:

    At the risk of sounding unfashionable, I’m pretty much over Jessica Chastain. Good actress but i think a little over rated.

  3. RocketMerry says:

    Oooh, good casting, I can see that.

    Feautured links side-note, Leia is coming back, too?! Hurray!! :D

  4. Ginger says:

    I LOVE her hair so much! She is so pretty. I too would watch this version of Tarzan so, fingers crossed that this will be the actual casting.

  5. brin says:

    I am definitely down for a Tarzan re-boot with Skars & Chas! Let the tribal drums begin!

  6. Hannah says:

    Hmm… Is it a good idea in terms of Alex’s career to have (what I am guessing will be) his first big leading role be more “shirtless work”?
    But then I don’t know what the movie will be like.

    • bettyrose says:

      . . . more “shirtless work” … Yes, it’s a good career move. Don’t fight it.

    • LAK says:

      He is in 3 incredibly well received indies (Sundance and Toronto)that have all scored theatrical releases. No sexy beast roles in any of them.

      Release dates are April and May. So unless you skip those films, then yes, it’ll appear that he went from one shitless role (TB) to another (TARZAN).

      TARZAN is a far better choice for his career than the mess that was BATTLESHIP. David Yates hasn’t made a bad film yet whereas Peter Berg is from the same school of directing as Michael Bay, with less sexism.

      • Hannah says:

        There is a difference, though, between indies with an ensemble cast and a Warner Bros production (obviously…) in which he would be the lead. You and I know about his other work but others might think: “Hey, now he takes his shirt of on the big screen!” I’m not saying it’s a bad career move (certainly not before the thing has even entered production), I am just pondering the question.

      • Amanda says:

        This tarzan movie is probably going to suck, alex doesn’t need this kind of movie.

  7. Izzy says:

    NO. Just no. B!tch better keep away from my Viking dong.

    Seriously, though, am I the only one not excited about the prospect of this movie?

  8. Liz says:

    She’s doing fashion week to keep her profile up, as I don’t think she signed to any of the major houses and she has been everywhere. She looks lovely in these photos, classic styling but fresh understated make up and really great hair.

  9. cat lover says:

    Their body language ? Both gay and both bearding for each other.
    There have been rumours for a while now that Chastain is a closeted lesbian. and her “boyfriend” doesn’t seem very… Interested in her.

  10. Ms Kay says:

    Good grief…. After the Oscar season she won’t give it a rest being in the spotlight? I know she is the face of a French perfume and perhaps going to Paris Fashion Week and all is part of the deal but still……. Saturation.

    • Miss Kiki says:

      It’s hilarious how easily we get sick of people. We’re a fickle bunch, I really like JC but right now I’m over seeing her everywhere.

      Can I also add that this won’t be anywhere near as funny the Tarzan film being made starring Kellan ‘Kellan Lutz’ Lutz

      • Ms Kay says:

        Oi!!!! Kellan Lutz will WIN an Oscar one day, in fact this might be his Oscar breakthrough role! And the Oscars will never be the same and be named the Lutz Achievement. Because that’s how great Kellan Lutz is. Kneel before Kellan Lutz! :-D

      • Izzy says:

        OK, ladies. I keep hearing cracks about Kellan Lutz, being all Lutzy, etc. I absolutely missed something here, and you all seem to have the scoop, so please explain to me all this Lutzy humor? I’ve just gotta know…

      • Ms Kay says:

        @ Izzy

        Hello my dear. Since Kellan Lutz appeared in the Twatlight Franchise, Kellan Lutz has a very high opinion of himself and has created his Lutz universe, so the whole thing comes off as an endearing delusional guy rather than arrogant. Kellan Lutz loves to talk about Kellan Lutz head, dimples, arms, abs, legs, Kellan Lutz feels that everybody loves to stare at his body, Kellan Lutz in 50 Shades of Grey, Kellan Lutz isn’t just a pack of meat, Kellan Lutz helps old ladies in the grocery, Kellan Lutz lost his virginity in high school, Kellan Lutz passion is chemistry, finally cherry on the top Kellan Lutz is very confident he will win an Oscar one day… So yes he talks about himself very much, he hears himself talk, he talks to himself in the mirror, so we might as well help him and talk about him in the 3rd person :-)

        Yes, we can only bow to the genius of The Lutz.

        I believe Kellan Lutz deserve a meme just like Ryan Gosling. He has Hey Girl, so why can’t Kellan Lutz have his Hey Kellan Lutz?

  11. Ashling says:

    This movie takes place after they are married and Tarzan has lived in society for a while. He goes back to the jungle on a mission from Queen Victoria. I really like to watch her on film. I’m into it!

  12. Live_laugh_love says:

    You had me at alexander skarsgard

  13. Nanz says:

    I’m worried that this Tarzan movie will be cheesy and it will tarnish my love of Chastain. But I’ll try to keep an open mind.

  14. GoodCapon says:

    I love her coat in the top photo! (ignores the try hard pose)

    This Tarzan gig sounds very bad. I hope she doesn’t end up choosing only “blockbuster” films and fade away into the horizon. She should sign up in a few quality films to keep the interest in her going.

  15. lisa says:

    ive never seen her play a hot girl convincingly and she doesnt come off that way in real life, i think jane should be able to muster up some hotness

  16. Lily says:

    I said she loves fashion. Last year she had to work before and right after the Oscars to film ZDT. She’s enjoying herself this time around.
    Her style changed a lot as well, she used to be very casual looking, now she’s very sophisticated looking. And I love her, tremendous actor.

  17. LAK says:

    I’ll take Jessica over Cameron at Paris Fashion week. Was it last year that she attended with a face full of botox and fillers? I still shudder.

  18. eileen says:

    Awww-I like her! I thought she was awesome in Zero Dark Thirty.
    I think it would be a good match for this movie!

  19. lady mary. says:

    skazzy in a leopard thong ,only! now when exactly is this movie releasing ppl?
    ps jessica reminds me of ursula from ” george of the jungle”,ithink she will be fine

  20. Jenna says:

    That just sounds like a BAD movie. What the hell Skarsie?! You were doing so well with WMK and The East. Don’t make another ‘Battleship’. -_-

  21. taxi says:

    She looks much better since she lost the curls. Hope she doesn’t find them, but I think she’s using extensions.

  22. Maria_Spain says:

    Tarzas´s silly plot and this girl? no thanks , as much as i adore Alex… i dont want to see him doing this sh**

  23. Sweet Dee says:

    I don’t care if she’s Jane or not (confession: I’ve never seen her act…I have a hard time staying awake through dramas), BUT I think ASkars would be sexy as hell as Tarzan and I will watch the hell out of this movie. Also: bonus Sam Jackson?!? Yes please.

  24. gloaming says:

    Jessica as Jane? imagining her in that role all I can think is sunburn and frizzy hair

  25. RHONYC says:

    please. do. not. fugging. tease. me.

    Skarsie in a loin cloth???

    i just tighten up a lil’…down there. 8O

  26. andrea says:

    I agree with everyone here who says Jessica needs to step awaaaay from the spotlight right now. It’s a bit too much. I like her and all, but damn, must she STILL be everywhere and reported to be in every damn thing?

  27. moon says:

    I don’t think she’s gay, she’s more likely a men snob and only dates oh so sophisticated europeans. She looks starry eyed in those photos, and he just looks…european i.e. open relationships. Jess should look elsewhere if she’s looking for marriage

  28. FassDaActor says:

    I do NOT need to see a Tarzan movie. I don’t want to know how Hollyweird’s going to handle the African aspect. No, thank you.

    To Chastain, saturation makes me tired.

  29. Meanchick says:

    THOSE two as Tarzan and Jane? I have two words for that: UNH-UNH!!

  30. zoe says:

    Skarsgard is only one of several actors that might get the part. If Chastain decides on the role of Jane she might have a say in which actor she’d prefer for Tarzan – let’s hope she’s never seen Battleship

  31. I'm Gonna Leave Soon says:

    no photos of Alex?

  32. j.eyre says:

    “in the original Tarzan story, does Jane bang Tarzan” – well, in the Bo Derek adaptation they do. Maybe it’s a remake of that one?

  33. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    Sounds like a great cast.

    More Alex! *drools all over keyboard*

  34. Kelly says:

    Her boyfriend looks like a tool. I really hope she doesn’t go the girlfriend/token girl route in movies. Hasn’t been working for Emma Stone and Jessica could do so much more!!

  35. Jack says:

    im sorry but i dont know who she is =o

  36. Lexi says:

    Alexander skarsgard is soooo hot, he will make a very hot tarzan

  37. Sofia says:

    I don’t think either of them would be good for the movie.

  38. babybarbie says:

    i soooo over chastain. at the beginning really likes me but know im tired to see her face all the time.
