Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the follow-up to last year’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes, has been doing the production shuffle as it preps up for eventual filming. The latest in new faces to be visiting the project is Mark Bomback, script writer for films such as Total Recall (the new one), Live Free or Die Hard and the as-of-yet unreleased The Wolverine.
The script had already been put together by the team of Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa and the studio was happy with it at the time, but since signing Matt Reeves as director they decided they wanted a rewrite to bring the existing screenplay more in line with his style. Well, it’s a long way off, so no telling how this movie will turn out, but personally I’ve not been impressed with Bomback so far. Let’s hope the other two laid enough groundwork that he won’t butcher it.
Providing there’s no zombie apocalypse, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes will be hitting theaters on May 23rd, 2014.
Thanks to geektyrant for the lovin’.
