Planet of the Apes Prequel in the Works?


Last month, CHUD reported that 20th Century Fox had a script in the works titled Genesis: Apes, which is essentially a remake of Conquest of the Planet of the Apes. The site said that the project is the story of Caesar, the first ape with speech who started the events that led to a world where monkeys were on top.

Now, they’re reporting that Fox’s Tom Rothman talks about the possible prequel in between showings of the “Planet of the Apes” movies on Fox Movie Channel this weekend.

“We are very close at Fox on a new Apes script- this one a kind of prequel story before the first story, with a return to the social thematics that mark the first one, but with an entirely contemporary setting – Earth 2009,” Rotham reportedly says.
