According to Deadline Hollywood, a remake of the action movie Tarzan, based on the character created by writer Edgar Rice Burroughs, will include two-time Oscar nominee Djimon Hounsou in a supporting role, along with Alexander Skarsgard and Margot Robbie.

Hounsou will play the character of Chief Mbonga in the new adaptation, which is being directed by David Yates. Skarsgard, who played in “True Blood,” will take on the role of Tarzan.

The movie follows the escapades of Tarzan after he has departed from the jungle to live out his life in London, England. However, a mission from Queen Victoria has Tarzan (Skarsgard) returning to the jungle one final time.

Tarzan’s mission entails investigating the dealings of Oscar-winning actor Christoph Waltz, who is accused of doing several underhand operations with his mining company.

The movie is expected to hit the screens around July of 2016 and will include Margot Robbie, who played in “The Wolf of Wall Street,” aiding Tarzan in his endeavors to outwit Waltz by playing the role of Jane Porter.

Hounsou will also appear in the new movie Guardians of the Galaxy and Fast & Furious 7, along with his voice-over in the new animated movie How To Train Your Dragon 2, he will have a busy couple of years ahead.

The 50-year-old Cononou, Benin-born actor was also nominated Oscars for supporting actor in the 2003 movie In America and the 2006 movie Blood Diamond. He is probably best known for his supporting role in the 2000 film Gladiator where he played alongside Russell Crowe.
