There were plans at 20th Century Fox to reboot the Planet of The Apes films, and after watching Burton’s epic failure I was just horrified at the thought of another. Then, it was reported that the film was dead after Scott Frank left the project. However, it now seems that Fox is “more determined than ever to get the film underway”.
Heres what you can expect this film to be about. Thanks to Collider:
“Frank’s Apes script, code-named Caesar, showed how genetic experiments on apes led to their evolutionary eclipse of humans. “Caesar” refers to the genetically altered leader of the simian rebellion, so dubbed because the ape was capable of grand strategic thinking on par with Julius Caesar (whose own surname means “hairy” in Latin). The “Caesar” code name also foreshadowed the script’s plot: Just as the actual Julius Caesar set Rome on the path to the Roman Empire, the experimental ape’s escape sets in motion his fellow hirsute hominids’ (wait for it … ) guerrilla war and subsequent dominance.”
I have zero interest in this, especially after remembering how shitty Burton’s remake was/is. I mean, I enjoyed Burton’s film(one of the few) at first, but after watching the original, I hated his film.
I also would rather just watch “Conquest of Planet of the Apes” instead, because this is nothing more than a remake of that film. This is one series that needs to be left alone.
Do you want to see another Planet of the Apes film?
