War for the Planet of the Apes

All hail Caesar! This is awesome. Filmmaker Matt Reeves posted a must see photo to his Twitter account this weekend to commemorate the start of shooting on the next film, War of the Planet of the Apes. The shot shows a motion-capture person (the ape) approaching a horse with someone on it, on a very murky beach. Over at SlashFilm they say this beach is very reminiscent of the one from the end of the original 1968 Planet of the Apes, when they find the Statue of the Liberty. That would be a pretty obvious connection, but who knows exactly what part they're shooting here. Could be an entirely new scene but it's still very cool, and I'm excited more than ever to see Reeves continue this story. Filming just started on this Apes sequel.

Here's the first look from Matt Reeves of War for the Planet of the Apes including: "It has begun…"

War for the Planet of the Apes

War for the Planet of the Apes is once again being directed by Matt Reeves (of Cloverfield, Let Me In), who also directed the outstanding Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. "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." The screenplay is written by Mark Bomback and Matt Reeves. The cast includes Andy Serkis as Caesar, plus Steve Zahn, Mercedes de la Zerda, Amiah Miller, Gabriel Chavarria, and Woody Harrelson as a villain. Fox will release War for the Planet of the Apes starting July 14th, 2017 a few summers from now. Stay tuned. Follow Reeves - @mattreevesLA.

We are going to the future? Probably not. But would not that be something else?!
