Caesar to Rule in Planet of the Apes Reboot

Caesar to Rule in <em>Planet of the Apes</em> Reboot

20th Century Fox is eager to move forward with the reboot of Planet of the Apes.

Thought to be dead the movie is getting new life with the help of Jamie Moss doing some rewrites. With a new producer,Peter Chernin, Fox has shown interest in pushing foward with the remake.

Here is the rundown on the movie plot from Collider.com:

“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.”

SO are you ready for some new Ape action or did Tim Burtons 2001 version leave you wishing for the apes to just become extinct?
