"Planet of the Apes" Prequel to Begin Filming in July

Posted: April 7th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Planet of the Apes" Prequel to Begin Filming in JulySubmit Comment
Production Weekly is reporting that 20th Century Fox's "Planet of the Apes" prequel, called "Caesar," has set up production offices in Burnaby, BC. Director Rupert Wyatt (The Escapist) will begin filming mid-July.

Based on 1972 "Conquest of the Planet of the Apes," the new film revolves around a doctor (Will) trying to cure Alzheimers. He's working with monkeys to create a benign virus that can get into brain tissue and restore functionality. After his research is shut down he's left with just one chimp, the child of his most promising subject. Young Caesar is incredibly intelligent for an ape, and over time he continues to mutate and evolve, looking less like a chimp and moving on from sign language to actual speech. Eventually Caesar ends up leading an army of apes in an uprising just as a catastrophe strikes mankind.

In addition, it has been announced that Bryan Singer (X-Men, Superman Returns) will begin shooting "Jack the Giant Killer" in London and Iceland starting in July. The project is what kept Singer from helming "X-Men: First Class."

Haha a story about apes evolving to men and another story ripped straight from the best selling book of all time (the Bible)... Irony.

this is a very odd choice for a remake.... doesn't sound like it would make any money for the studio

wish they wouldn't use the term helming sounds like something vin would say to coc on a night out...

So... if this chimp evolves... and he's less ape, not-quite human... how does he evoke this revolution with an army of apes? And where does he get this many apes (Apes-r-Us? ApeMart?), 1-APE-Kick-Ass!? And why would they follow him (or bother to care to)... because he 'looks' like them?

Is this 'Flowers for Algernon' in reverse?

Just re-release the first Planet of the Apes with Heston - with a free pop and popcorn!

Planet of the apes? Sounds like a all gay orgy at vindandys.

@trailer - not sure. I was just referring to the story.

@johnny - sounds like, or is?

As for this movie... don't care (about it). They will NEVER capture the alien-feeling one got watching the first one with Heston. I mean... the story didn't come together until the very last few minutes. Even Walhberg's version didn't come close. If they insist on beating dead dogs... dig up COC's mother.

Really, why remake a film that was successful. Why not take a movie that failed and remake so it's good and succeeds?

How can this movie be a prequel.

Even if the experiment included 1000 apes, there's no way they could overthrow mankind. Do they make all the world's apes smart too? How does that work? Do they fly or maybe they swim to Africa?

@Freudian - this movie idea is f*cked.
