After the surpringly great reboot of the Planet of the Apes franchise, 20th Century Fox made no secret of their plans to have at least a third movie and now, after Rise and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, it looks like we know the title of the trilogy closer.
And, given the events so far, it’s no big surprise, really…
Collider say the movie is called War of the Planet of the Apes, although it’s still unconfirmed by fox at this point.
Director Matt Reeves will return to the Planet with this third installment: “The notion of what we’re after with the third is to sort of continue that trajectory and see how he becomes a seminal figure in ape history. He almost becomes sort of like an ape Moses. A mythic status… We’re trying to play out those themes and continue to sort of explore it in this universe. Exploring human nature under the guise of apes.”
War of the Planet of the Apes is set for release on July 14, 2017.
