Hustle and Flow Director Mounts Tarzan Trilogy

It's hard out there for a chimp, and Tarzan, who was raised among them, would know. So perhaps he's the perfect fit for Hustle and Flow director Craig Brewer, who just signed a deal with Warner Bros. to write and direct a new take on the Edgar Rice Burroughs vine-swinger, even though the studio is already developing another Tarzan movie with Tron Legacy director Joseph Kosinski. Giving Brewer's project the edge may be its franchise possibilities, since the director already has a trilogy in mind (guess he didn't listen to our advice against thinking one too many sequels ahead).
