Title of Matt Reeves' Next 'Planet of the Apes' Sequel Confirmed
Briefly: As Caesar said, war has begun. We all knew it was coming, but now it's official. Collider is reporting the next Planet of the Apes movie will be titled War of the Planet of the Apes, so from here on out that's how we'll be referring to it. This is the third movie in the new series started by Rupert Wyatt with Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which continued the Caesar storyline into Dawn of the Planet of the Apes directed by Matt Reeves, now it's War of the Planet of the Apes due in 2017, also directed by Matt Reeves. He says: "As this story continues, we know that war is not avoided by the end of Dawn. That is going to take us into the world of what he is grappling with. Where [Caesar] is going to be thrust into circumstances that he never, ever wanted to deal with, and was hoping he could avoid. And now he is right in the middle of it."
