Matt Reeves is slated to direct the sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Bomback has worked on both The Wolverine and A Good Day to Die Hard but also did uncredited work on the first Apes movie.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes will be released on May 23, 2014.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
