Tarzan’s Congo has been recreated and nothing is as it seems. The spectacular trees are made from poly-styrene foam. The fast-flowing river is created with an intricate soakaway system under the floor. The monsoon rain used to dramatic effect in the film is a spray from a rig in the roof. And Pisano is arranging leaves from an English woodland on the ‘tropical’ forest floor.
A giant waterfall in a jungle was created for the forthcoming Tarzan, starring Alexander Skarsgård, spread over a 100-acre site. One insider said of the backlot: “We think it’s the biggest in Europe. Some of the producers say it’s the biggest they’ve come across.”
The film’s chief attraction – aside from Christopher Lambert – was the fact that the apes are played by actors in animal suits.
