New ‘Planet Of The Apes’ Movie In Early Development At 20th Century Fox With Director Wes Ball

The apes will live on. Deadline has confirmed that 20th Century Fox under its new parent Disney has tapped Maze Runner filmmaker Wes Ball to develop a new Planet of the Apes movie. It’s very early in the works, and it’s not certain if this will pick up where Matt Reeves’ War for the Planet of the Apes left off or if it’s a complete remake.
