Matt Reeves

Audiences won’t get to see Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the latest sequel in the long-running sci-fi franchise, until this summer, but 20th Century Fox must surely be happy with how the anticipated film is shaping up because they have signed Dawn director Matt Reeves to both co-write and direct the next Apes adventure.

Reeves, who also directed Cloverfield and Let Me In, will share scripting duties on the third entry in the rebooted Apes franchise that was reborn with the surprising success of 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes with Mark Bomback. The original screenplay for Dawn was written by Rise scribes Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver and went through rewrites by Scott Z. Burns (Contagion) and Bomback. In addition to this summer’s smashing X-flick The Wolverine, Bomback has also worked on the scripts for Live Free or Die Hard, Tony Scott’s final movie Unstoppable, and last summer’s Total Recall remake.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes ended on a bittersweet note. Caesar (Andy Serkis) had evolved his fellow apes at an unexpectedly fast pace, and a stealthy killer virus was being spread throughout the world.

But how well has humanity fared since those events have transpired, and are the apes really off in a better place now that they have established themselves as the dominate species? You’ll just have to hit the trailer below to find out.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

As luck would have it, Fox didn’t need to make a mad scramble to find a director for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, after Rupert Wyatt exited because he felt he couldn’t give the sequel the same quality as he did in the first film. Let Me In and Cloverfield director Matt Reeves was brought in to direct the film, which would be his first time directing a major summer tentpole flick.

But before Reeves can sit in the director’s chair, Mark Bomback will be rewriting the draft that Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver penned. The script recently saw some revisions done by Contagion scribe Scott Burns.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Before summer 2011 ended, audiences were completely taken by Rupert Wyatt’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Its success had 20th Century Fox quickly commission for a sequel to be put into production, with Wyatt being its director once again.

However, there seems to be some trouble as Wyatt may be unable to commit to direct the sequel, which is titled Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. But it’s not because he is having troubles with the studio, it’s because he feels as though he is unable to deliver the same quality of film he did with his first Apes film and make the scheduled release date of May 23rd, 2014.
