With his latest, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, having just opened to both critical acclaim and more than $100 million at the worldwide box office, director Matt Reeves is already looking to the future. He's attached to both direct and co-write the next, currently untitled, chapter in the long-running science fiction franchise, which is slated to hit the big screen on July 29, 2016. After that, however, Reeves tells us that it may finally be time for him to tackle his long-gestating passion project, an original science fiction story called The Invisible Woman.

"That's still a movie I desperately want to make," Reeves tells ComingSoon.net "...[I]f I don't make it right before this one, I'll make it right after the next ape film."

Plans for The Invisible Woman originally date back to 2008 when Reeves planned to make the film a follow-up to his debut feature, Cloverfield.

"It's a very intimate character story," Reeves told ShockTillYouDrop.com in 2011, "with a similar tone to 'Let Me In,' a Hitchcockian suspense style. It's an anatomy of this one woman's desperation. You follow her through ever step of what seems like extreme behavior, but at the end you hopefully see why every step was made."

At one point in time, Naomi Watts was attached to headline The Invisible Woman, but she dropped out due to a scheduling conflict. Reeves now says that, because the scale of the film is relatively small, it's very likely that he'll find a chance to shoot it with an as-of-yet-undetermined cast.

"I doubt if I would make it right before [the next 'Apes']," he says, "because this one is going to be such an enormous undertaking to get going. I'm supposed to write it as well with Mark Bomback."

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is in theaters now.
