Matt Reeves to Direct Planet of the Apes 3

by SuperHeroHype

January 07, 2014

20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment have signed Dawn of the Planet of the Apes helmer Matt Reeves to direct the third installment of the franchise, reports Deadline.

Reeves will co-write the script with Mark Bomback, who wrote the script for the sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which earned $482 million worldwide in 2011. The trade says that Reeves will likely go right into the third film after finishing "Dawn."

In Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, a growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth's dominant species.

Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Enrique Murciano, Kirk Acevedo and Judy Greer star in the July 11 release.

Reeves' other directing credits include Cloverfield and Let Me In.

Title for Third Planet of the Apes Film Revealed?

SuperHeroHype

May 14, 2015

Even before Dawn of the Planet of the Apes debuted in theaters last summer and became a box office smash, 20th Century Fox was already making plans for a follow-up film. Collider now brings word that the previously unnamed feature will go by the title: War of the Planet of the Apes. This remains unconfirmed by Fox, but stay tuned for updates as we learn them.

“It could be five years after the event, it could be the night after the events of where we left ‘Dawn,’ so it’s very difficult to know where the story is going right at this moment because it’s being written as we speak,” series star Andy Serkis said of the film last year. “I know that part of the desire for Matt [Reeves] to do this next movie is about continuing the enjoyment of seeing these apes evolve. So I don’t think we’re going to see a situation where we’re jumping….It might be three films, It could be four. It could be five. Who knows? But the journey will continue. It might not necessarily be summarized or completely fulfilled in this next one. The point being, eventually we know that we’re going to end up back at ‘The Planet of the Apes,’ but whether it’s this film or not, I don’t know.”

Director Matt Reeves also chimed in about the movie previously, saying: “The notion of what we’re after with the third is to sort of continue that trajectory and see how he becomes a seminal figure in ape history. He almost becomes sort of like an ape Moses. A mythic status… We’re trying to play out those themes and continue to sort of explore it in this universe. Exploring human nature under the guise of apes.”

Reeves, who directed last year’s “Dawn,” will return for the sequel, the script for which he is co-writing with Mark Bomback. War of the Planet of the Apes is set for release on July 14, 2017.

See Andy Serkis Transform for War for the Planet of the Apes

SuperHeroHype

Jun 30, 2017

20th Century Fox have released a new clip for War for the Planet of the Apes featuring Andy Serkis giving his performance as Caesar before and after Weta Digital creates his digital transformation. Check it out below!

Over the course of three films, Weta Digital has mastered the art of translating human actors to apes. The apes level of sentience has developed throughout each film and so too have Weta Digital’s techniques and toolsets. Developing some of the most advanced techniques in the industry, Weta artists employ these tools to create exceptional CG characters.

In War for the Planet of the Apes, the third chapter in the rebooted take on the enduring science fiction franchise, Caesar (Andy Serkis) and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel (Woody Harrelson). After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the Colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both their species and the future of the planet.

The film, directed by the returning Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Let Me In), also stars Steve Zahn (Dallas Buyers Club, Captain Fantastic), Terry Notary (Kong: Skull Island, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) and Karin Konoval (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, 2012).

War for the Planet of the Apes opens nationwide on July 14.
