The Wolf of Wall Street’s Margot Robbie in Talks for Tarzan

Actress Margot Robbie poses during red carpet arrivals for the Critic's Choice Awards in Santa Monica, California on January 16, 2014.

Margot Robbie broke through this winter with her performance as Jordan Belfort's second wife, Naomi, in The Wolf of Wall Street. Well, now the Wrap reports that Robbie is in talks to play the love interest of another primate-esque male protagonist, Tarzan's Jane. Tarzan will be played by Alexander Skarsgard (more like Alexander Tarzgard), and David Yates (helmer of multiple Harry Potter films) will direct. Yates said he liked Robbie for the role because she was already familiar with Tarzan's mating chant
