There’s been a lot of talk about the upcoming Planet of the Apes movie which is currently in development at Disney.
The movie is going to be directed by Wes Ball, who made The Maze Runner trilogy.
Joe Hartwick Jr. and David Starke will produce the upcoming Planet of the Apes movie.
Up until recently, it was believed that this movie which is now being made by Disney was going to be a reboot of the franchise.
However, Ball took to Twitter to reveal that his film will not be a reboot which has taken quite a few people by surprise.
Here’s what the director said on Twitter after someone asked him whether his Planet of the Apes movie would be a reboot:
It’s never been easier for film journalists to actually get in touch with the actual people who actually know… but maybe it’s the point to NOT fact-check these days? Regardless. Don’t worry. I won’t ruin the surprises, but it’s safe to say Caesar’s legacy will continue…
Wes Ball reveals his Planet of the Apes movie won’t be a reboot
This is really interesting because it means that Ball’s Planet of the Apes movie will continue Caesar’s legacy.
In all honesty, I think this is the best way forward because Matt Reeves’ previous films really were that good.
They build an incredible world with established characters and I for one would love to see how the story might continue.
What do you think of this? Are you happy to hear that Wes Ball’s Planet of the Apes movie won’t be a reboot?
