CHUD got to the bottom of all the Planet of the Apes prequel talk. Scott Frank (Minority Report) is on board to write and direct the film, titled Caesar. Here’s a clip:
Caesar is not a remake of Conquest of the Planet of the Apes.

But it isn’t entirely divorced from the world of Planet of the Apes, either. In fact, Frank sees his movie as the opening chapter in a saga that could span the thousand years between today and a world where apes rule.
