Margot Robbie is reportedly in talks to star in Tarzan.

The Wolf Of Wall Street actress is said to be considering the role of Jane in the big-screen adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' novels, which will be directed by Harry Potter director David Yates, reported The Wrap.

Alexander Skarsgard is already on board to portray the king of the jungle, with Christoph Waltz and Samuel L Jackson in negotiations to take supporting roles.

Margot, who plays Leonardo DiCaprio's wife in Martin Scorsese's Wolf Of Wall Street, is also said to be in talks to replace Amanda Seyfried in psychological thriller Z For Zachariah, playing a young woman who thinks she is the only survivor after a devastating nuclear event.

12 Years A Slave star Chiwetel Ejiofor and Chris Pine are tipped to have roles in the zombie film, which is adapted from Robert O'Brien's post-apocalyptic novel.

Production on Z For Zachariah is due to start in coming months, while shooting on Tarzan is expected to begin in the summer.

Australian actress Margot, who began her career in Neighbours, previously starred in short-lived series Pan-Am.

The 23-year-old, who appeared in Richard Curtis' time-travelling drama About Time, will next star in Focus with Will Smith and alongside Michelle Williams, Matthias Schoenaerts and Kristin Scott Thomas in the romantic drama Suite Francaise.
