<i>Planet of the Apes</i> Prequel Gets Official Name And Release Date!

Twentieth Century Fox announces release date, title, and plot details of the upcoming prequel...

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Twentieth Century Fox has announced that the newest Planet of The Apes prequel will be released on June 24, 2011. The name of the movie is Rise of the Apes. Heres are the details about the technology that will be used, as well as some plot points...

"The studio will partner with WETA Digital to employ the groundbreaking technologies developed for Avatar, rendering photo-realistic apes rather than costumed actors. Rupert Wyatt (The Escapist) will direct from a screenplay by Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa."

"Rise of the Apes is set in present day San Francisco where man’s experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence of apes and the onset of a war for supremacy. Peter Chernin and Dylan Clark will produce."


...The originals were great and classic. The Tim Burton remake, not so much. Hopefully this one will keep the spirit of the originals, with some modern updates.
