You’ll call to mind a few weeks back Devin from CHUD reporting on a new “Planet of the Apes” movie that Fox were being embryonic with. Tilted “Genesis: Apes”, it would fundamentally be a restructure of “Conquest of the Planet of the Apes”, centering on the first chatting primate, Caesar.
Tom Rothman, he of ‘I sit in the big chair’ at Fox fame, was on the Fox Movie Channel over the weekend, speaking between the “Apes” movies that were being broadcast, and ingrained the news.
According to CHUD, Rothman said "We are very close at Fox on a new Apes script- this one a kind of prequel story before the first story, with a return to the social thematics that mark the first one, but with an entirely contemporary setting - Earth 2009”.
Update! : Cinema Blend are reporting that Scott Frank(The Lookout), is set to direct the movie.
