Exclusive: Director David Yates and producer David Barron on bringing Tarzan to life on the big screen


Having helmed the final four movies in the Harry Potter franchise, David Yates now turns his head to the tale of another literary icon, in The Legend of Tarzan.

We had the pleasure of speaking to the man himself, paired with the film’s producer David Barron, about the challenges in balancing the historical context with a film that thrives in the adventure genre. Yates also speaks briefly about his next endeavour, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, while Barron talks on his next collaboration with Margot Robbie, in Terminal.

The Legend of Tarzan is released in cinemas on July 6th.
