We have good news for fans of Matt Reeves, Gary Whitta, Mouse Guard or all of the above: The War For the Planet of the Apes director is teaming up with the former screenwriter of Rogue One to bring the Eisner Award-winning graphic novel series to the big screen. Sadly, Reeves won’t be directing the project himself, but given his experience working with mo-cap on the Apes films, he’ll make for one heck of a producer.

In some film circles, it’s fashionable to dump on studio-made pictures as hollow money-makers, devoid of intrinsic artistic merit and existing only to fatten the pockets of corporate executives heading the companies that finance them. This is an extremely uncharitable and patently unfair stance to take, and nobody proves that more amply than Matt Reeves. (Except for maybe Magic Mike XXL, clearly the greatest American studio film of the millennium.) Reeves has been able to carve out his own corner of the studio system, filling it with innovatively staged creature features (Cloverfield), remakes of foreign genre standouts (Let Me In, a rework of Swedish vampire romance Let the Right One In), and most recently, a blockbuster with more smarts and character than the vast majority of features that slink through neighborhood cineplexes (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes).

Good news: War of the Planet of the Apes has added Woody Harrelson to the cast. Bad news: Woody Harrelson will not be playing an ape. Good news: Woody Harrelson will be playing a mysterious character known as “the Colonel,” which means he’ll probably have at least one scene where he fist-fights an ape to the death. After all, movie characters whose names are just military titles do that kind of thing.

The title of the third film in the rebooted Planet of the Apes franchise has been revealed and it shouldn’t surprise anyone who watched Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Since the previous film concluded with the stalemate between Caeser’s tribe and the humans of San Francisco bubbling over into bloodshed, it’s only natural that the follow-up would be titled War of the Planet of the Apes.

While 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' ruled the box office this past weekend to the acclaim of many critics, audiences could've received a much different film. From our chat with director Matt Reeves, we learned that an initial story treatment included highly evolved versions of the ape tribe who could speak rather articulately. Now, new 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' concept art has hit the web, which seems to be along the lines of this earlier draft.
