"Planet of the Apes" Prequel Gets Title and Plot

Posted: December 1st, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Planet of the Apes" Prequel Gets Title and PlotSubmit Comment
Production Weekly has confirmed the rumored "Planet of the Apes" prequel, adding that a director has already been attached to the project. That director is Scott Frank, who made his debut with "The Lookout," but has previously written scripts for such films as "Get Shorty" and "Minority Report."

It seems that 20th Century Fox is handing over the franchise to Frank, which will be started with a remake of the 1972 "Conquest of the Planet of the Apes." The new name of the prequel/remake will be "Caesar," instead of the rumored "Apes: Genesis."

The site also has a brief plot synopsis: "The origins of how the Apes took over Earth. A hyper-intelligent chimp raised by humans incites a worldwide ape revolution and causes the downfall of mankind."

Do you think the "Planet of the Apes" franchise is worth saving?

^ Brilliant hahaha. Apes, intelligent or not, taking over the earth is pretty far fetched...oh wait...we're all living proof of that right now.

They really need to include Planet of the Apes in the title, or it the public won't buy into it. Just calling it Ceaser is stupid and nobody will get that it is a Planet of the Apes movie.

Human being's are not apes, unless you are offering yourself as proof. Though we share genetics with them, we aren't apes. Duh. Apples and oranges, to use the old cliche, arent the same yet they share common genes. Calling people apes while obviously excluding themselves isn't funny unless your audience is in the fifth grade. It's pretentious and f*cking juvenile, but what can you expect from the Internet? And we don;t need this sh*t movie. There's enough garbage in theaters without throwing a bunch of dirty apes into the mix. The Burton film stunk, and the original films are laughably bad satire.

"nobody will get that it is a Planet of the Apes movie." not from the title alone. But when they see a teaser, or a trailer, I'm sure no one will think the film is remake of My Fair Lady. Talking apes? Either dinner at Prevalent Mind's home under the overpass, or a Planet of the Apes film. No one will find themselves otherwise confused.

"@minkowski: Are you a creationist or something?" Are you f*cking moron or something? When did I say anything about creationism? Oh wait, You think the essence of evolution is "humans=apes", and because I refuted that wildly inaccurate and scientific statement, you equate me with a creationist?? tell me you're joking...or has the educational system failed yet another sapling?
