Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' 2016 Sequel to be a Remake of Planet of the Apes?

Written By Gavin Singleton on 2014-06-17 14:24:43

In 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes directed by Rupert Wyatt, we saw how intelligently born Ape Caesar spread the ALZ-113 serum to give his kindred the gift of intelligence, while inadvertantly wiping out most of the human race with the serums side effect on humans AKA the Simian Flu. In this years Dawn of the Planet of the Apes directed by Matt Reeves, Caesar and his Ape kingdom have grown, and are on the verge of war with some of the remaining human survivors of the Simian Flu, the outcome of which will determine whom will become the Earth's dominant species. The sequel, which has already been confirmed for release July 29th 2016, with director Matt Reeves set to return as director and co-writer with Mark Bomback, is reportedly going to be called... Planet of the Apes...

This image, taken today at the 2014 Licensing Expo in Las Vegas, shows clearly that the next installment in the Caesar trilogy will share the same name as the 1968 original and Tim Burton's ill fated 2001 remake. Whether this means that the movie will be an actual remake of the original or not remains to be seen.

Though many are expecting, hoping Andy Serkis will return as Caesar, though likely an aged Caesar, it is highly likely the Icarus spacecraft teased in Rise of the Planet of the Apes returns to Earth to discover to birth of the Planet of the Apes. Of course this is mere speculation at this point, but it is highly unlikely the next instalment wont be a remake given its title.

That would be so awesome if we would have a complete stand-alone 'Planet of the Apes' - Trilogy. But how is the story going to continue? What if earth sends an astronaut called 'Taylor' to past with the mission to avoid that 'Caesar' was born. So if 'Caesar' wasn't born, the apes wouldn't start a revolution or prevolution and in the end there won't be a 'Planet of the Apes'. That would be a story with a happy end.

Good that you mentioned Icarus. I'm pretty sure that we'll see a post-apocalyptic earth like we've seen in the original but more dramatic and then the Icarus which was lost in space (a newsreport in 'Rise of the Planet of the Earth' reported that the Icarus was lost in space) returns to earth which is in the year 2673. I'm really excited to see the two sequels to 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes'. If they are like the first one or even better, they will be better than the original.
