The Planet of the Apes series is getting another reboot! This time, director of The Maze Runner, Wes Ball will be at the helm! According to reports the new Plant of the Apes movie(s) will be taking itself in a new direction, but will still honor the films which came before it, specifically the most recent trilogy.

In a previous interview with Discussing Film, Wes was quoted saying:

What do you do for a Planet of the Apes sequel? One, those last three movies are one of the great trilogies we have in modern movie history. They are just so well done. They honored the original movies they sprang from, the Charlton Heston movies, but they grounded it in a modern sensibility and it just worked. Caesar is one of the great movie characters that we’ll have throughout time. So what do you do to follow that up, right? At the same time, I wasn’t interested in doing a part four either. We want to also do our own thing. Have a way of staying in the universe that was created before us, but we’re also opening ourselves up in being able to do some really cool new stuff.

Many of those involved with Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes will be involved with Wes Ball's new film. He went in to confirm:

I’ll say this, for fans of the original three don’t worry – you’re in good hands. The original writers and producers that came up with Rise and Dawn, Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, they’re also on board with this. Josh Friedman is writing this thing, a lot of the same crew is kind of involved. We will feel like we’re part of that original trilogy, but at the same time we’re able to do some really cool new stuff. It will be really exciting to see on the biggest screen possible.

As of May, 2020 the new Planet of the Apes reboot had entered pre-production. As the film industry starts to slowly resume functionality, we could see the new Apes reboot start filming as early as this Fall/Winter or early 2021.

 Not sure why they need a reboot of a great series, but whatever.

I can't see how Disney could top these movies. They are safe for all ages and they are all solid and fit together. They would do better by continuing with a sequel imo, but it would start to feel tired after the last movie.
