Big News On The Future Of The PLANET OF THE APES Franchise!

Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.

DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES was released this past Summer and was a huge box office hit, pulling in $708 million worldwide. It is gearing up for it's home video release on December 2nd. As we await the arrival of the follow up film, which is due out in 2016, we can only imagine where the storyline will be taking us.

Andy Serkis, who portrays Caesar, recently spoke with MTV about what the future holds for the PLANET OF THE APES franchise saying:

"It’s very, very early in where we choose to drop anchor in the next film. It could be five years after the event, it could be the night after the events of where we left ‘Dawn,’ so it’s very difficult to know where the story is going right at this moment because it’s being written as we speak. I know that part of the desire for Matt [Reeves] to do this next movie is about continuing the enjoyment of seeing these apes evolve. So I don’t think we’re going to see a situation where we’re jumping….It might be three films, It could be four. It could be five. Who knows? But the journey will continue. It might not necessarily be summarized or completely fulfilled in this next one. The point being, eventually we know that we’re going to end up back at ‘The Planet of the Apes,’ but whether it’s this film or not, I don’t know.”

There are so many possibilities out there as to which direction the story will go. Could we eventually be revisiting the original 1968 storyline at some point? Only time will tell.

The upcoming PLANET OF THE APES film is scheduled for release on July 29, 2016 with Matt Reeves returning to direct.
