Fans of the Planet of the Apes franchise can sleep a little easier, director Matt Reeves is already locked in to remain in the center seat for the third film in the revamped Planet of the Apes series.
The only surprising part of this story is that 20th Century Fox didn’t just go ahead and shoot the second and third film at the same time, but better a wait then a hurried and cobbled together third film. Reeves will also co-write the script with Mark Bomback (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Wolverine). It’s not a huge leap to expect 20th Century Fox to lock in Andy Serkis as well. Could Gary Oldman‘s character Dreyfus make it into the third film? Why do I expect him to die a horrible Ape related death?
The title or story-line for the third film hasn’t been discussed publicly, but we can speculate to our hearts content.
War on the Planet of the Apes
Planet of the Apes VS Zombies
You Damn Dirty Ape: The Musical (That’s gotta star Zac Efron)
What do you think, is Dawn just a prelude to the Battle for the Planet of the Apes? Dawn of the Planet of the Apes hits theater screens on July 11th.
