New PLANET OF THE APES Movie In Development From MAZE RUNNER Director Wes Ball
We assumed Matt Reeves' War for the Planet of the Apes would be the final installment in the saga, but there's a brand new Apes movie in early development at Fox with Wes Ball (Maze Runner) at the helm.
The iconic Apes franchise was rebooted (although the movies also served as prequels) back in 2011 with Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and the new trilogy wrapped-up in 2017's superb War for the Planet of the Apes. Although there is plenty of room to continue the story, THR is not sure whether this new film will be a follow-up or a full reboot.
Ball will also produce the movie with with his partner at Oddball Entertainment, Joe Hartwick.
That's all we have to go on for now, but we'll update if and when more details come our way. In the meantime, let us know what you think of this news in the comments.
