I'd say we call it...

Anyway, have they started principle shooting yet? I just watched Rise last night, and I was amazed at this film.

New title "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,"
Release date set for Memorial Day 2014
Quote:
The sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes not only has a release date it but now has a fantastic title. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes will hit theaters on Memorial Day, May 23rd, 2014. Rise director Rupert Wyatt is thankfully returning to helm the follow-up, and he previously talked at length about his ideas for further entries in the franchise. Contagion and The Bourne Ultimatum scribe Scott Z. Burns is writing the screenplay, and I’m incredibly eager to see Wyatt and star Andy Serkis continue the Apes saga.

I dont mean to be "That" guy, but wouldnt a "Dawn" of something technically occur before it "Rises"?

Still stoked for another film though.

Is Director Rupert Wyatt Leaving DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES?

Although the release date is more than 18 months away, it looks like director Rupert Wyatt may be stepping away from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Wyatt directed the 2011 reboot/prequel, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and was expected to return for multiple sequels along with star Andy Serkis. Now, reports are coming out that Wyatt is exiting the production with the explanation that he doesn’t feel comfortable making the expected release date of May 23, 2014. Hit the jump for much more, including what this move means for the future of the sequel and for Wyatt’s career.

Deadline reports that Wyatt may be exiting Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, but Fox has declined to comment. If Wyatt’s explanation is to be believed, his departure would be similar to that of director Gary Ross when he opted not to direct The Hunger Games: Catching Fire due to the studio’s time constraint, even after the first film’s phenomenal success. Wyatt was certainly a major component to the success of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, but much like Ross’s situation, we will have to wait until the sequel comes out before we can say whether the directors were integral to the quality of the films or if it was just a rabid fan base for both properties that drove up the box office numbers.

Without Wyatt, Fox will be on the hunt for a director to step in quickly. The franchise is too important to waste any time and the studio is already reportedly satisfied with the script turned in by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver. The follow-up film should see the apes taking over the world and possibly talking, which the screenwriters talked about briefly.

Don’t feel too bad for Wyatt if he leaves the production. He’s also attached to direct Agent 13 for Universal with Charlize Theron starring. He may now be able to revisit Londongrad, which was to star Michael Fassbender as former KGB spy Alexander Litvinenko, who was poisoned with Polonium-210 back in 2006.

Between this and the screenwriters of Transformers involved, I've pretty much lost all initial interest.

It isn't OFFICIAL he's leaving - It says "maybe" 2-3 times, so who knows right NOW.

Either way, it's 18 months away & he's worried about not making the date??

Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver didn't write Transformers. Neither did Scott Z. Burns. So you can resume interest.

Must've got it confused with the Amazing Spider-Man sequel. I was thinking of them getting the guy who wrote Contagion.

Matt Reeves Off ‘The Twilight Zone;’ Now Leads Studio Short List For ‘Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes’ With Guillermo Del Toro, Jeff Nichols, Rian Johnson and Others

For about a year now, Let Me In and Cloverfield director Matt Reeves has been attached to a new theatrical film based on The Twilight Zone. It was just one of several projects on the director’s plate and certainly the most high profile. In that time, multiple writers had been tasked with writing a screenplay but, with nare a greenlight in sight after a year, it seems Reeves has decided to move on. He will no longer direct Warner Bros. new Twilight Zone movie.

Instead, he’s now become the frontrunner to replace Rupert Wyatt as the director of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Also on the short list behind Reeves: J Blakeson (The Disappearance of Alice Creed), Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later), Jeff Nichols (Take Shelter), Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy), Juan Antonio Bayona (The Impossible) and Rian Johnson (Looper). Read more after the jump.


Variety reported on Reeves’ departure from The Twilight Zone, citing “scheduling conflicts” and state that Warner Bros. has placed an “open director assignment” on the film meaning it’s wide open to the rest of Hollywood. They also reported on his new interest in the Apes sequel and Deadline added to the report as well.



Let’s start with Twilight Zone. While “scheduling conflicts” are likely the official reason, odds are those “scheduling conflicts” came from the fact that after a year of development and multiple versions of the screenplay, no one could piece together an idea that Warner Bros. was ready to make. Maybe that means the proposed budgets were too high or maybe they ideas just weren’t good enough. Either way, it’s likely that after all that time Reeves finally decided to concentrate on something else.

That something else, it seems, might have been the sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which recently had its director leave. Wyatt left, however, because he didn’t think he could hit the release date 20th Century Fox has placed on the film: ay May 23, 2014. According to Deadline, Reeves is the #1 name on their short list which seems like a good enough reason to abandon the other franchise.

As for the other names on the short list, I’d imagine could end up in play if Reeves passes. (Meetings are reportedly happening very soon.) That is, except for Del Toro, a total pipe dream as he has Pacific Rim currently deep in post-production.

If Reeves passes on Apes, he’d have plenty of other options. . He’s also been developing, or at least has had his name attached to, the zombie apocalypse film The Passage, the Frankenstein film This Dark Endeavor, a new take on the They Live short story and also signed a TV deal with 20th Century Fox just last week. That deal was certainly a major factor in him leaving Twilight Zone but Apes surely factored in too.

Are you sad to see Reeves leave Twilight Zone? Is he the right man for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes?

Comingsoon.net confirm Matt reeves as director of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

A brilliant choice (if they couldn't get Wyatt back). He's great with handling big SFX stuff but directs with an intelligent and sure-handed style. He'll fit the film perfectly.

Great news! Glad to see Reeves has gotten the chance to do this. I'm now even more excited for this one than I was before. I'll miss Wyatt, but Reeves is the next best thing.

THE WOLVERINE Scribe Mark Bomback to Rewrite DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES
Quote:

The Rise of the Planet of the Apes sequel got a new director a few weeks ago, and now the project is getting a new writer. Mark Bomback (The Wolverine, Total Recall remake) has been brought in to work on the script for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. It’s a bit of a confusing move, as when Matt Reeves (Let Me In) replaced Rise director Rupert Wyatt, all reports noted that the follow-up had an existing script by Rise scribes Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa that everybody loved.

Bomback isn’t exactly a stranger to the Apes franchise, as he did some uncredited work on Silver and Jaffa’s script for Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Wyatt’s departure coupled with this rewrite news (via Heat Vision) isn’t exactly reassuring, but it’s possible that Reeves has some changes he’d like made and Bomback is being brought in to hone the script more toward Reeves’ vision.

Whatever the case, I sincerely hope things even out in the wash. Rise was a wonderfully pleasant surprise last year and Reeves is an immensely talented filmmaker. Moreover, Andy Serkis (the heart and soul of Rise) is already signed on to return, so all the pieces are in place for a really thoughtful and fun ride. Production is expected to begin next year so that Dawn of the Planet of the Apes can meet its May 23rd, 2014 release date.
