Writer/director Wes Ball clarifies the direction of the next Planet Of The Apes film.
News popped up over the last day or two regarding the Disney-owned Fox’s plans for the Planet Of The Apes saga. This is one of the franchises that’s survived the cull of Fox projects, with plans afoot for a new film in the series.
The stories, though, had an inaccuracy within them. It’s well known that writer/director Wes Ball – of The Maze Runner movies – is the new choice for the Planet Of The Apes films. But he’s clarified that contrary to reports, his new film will not be a reboot of the saga. Rather, he’s going to carry on the story post-War For The Planet Of The Apes.
This was revealed in a correction of sorts he posted on Twitter, in response to an inaccurate story…
It’s never been easier for film journalists to actually get in touch with the actual people who actually know… but maybe it’s the point to NOT fact-check these days?
Regardless. Don’t worry. I won’t ruin the surprises, but it’s safe to say Caesar’s legacy will continue…🤫
