Matt Reeves To Helm DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES

It has been confirmed that the Cloverfield and Let Me In director has signed up to helm the sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes after Rupert Wyatt decided not to return for the follow-up. Read on for further details.


It's official! After reports last week that Matt Reeves (Cloverfield), J Blakeson (The Disappearance Of Alice Creed), Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later), Jeff Nichols (Take Shelter), Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy), Juan Antonio Bayona (The Impossible and Rian Johnson (Looper) were all in talks to helm Dawn Of The Planet of the Apes, it is Reeves who has officially signed on to direct. Deadline has broken the news, and while Reeves was always the frontrunner (especially after dropping out of Warner Bros.' The Twilight Zone) and is expected to still deliver the film for the planned May 23rd, 2014 release date.
