Matt Reeves Has Ideas For Continuing Planet of the Apes Franchise
‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ is the third part in the trilogy started by ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ which hit theatres in 2011. The former, which was released on July 14, was directed by Matt Reeves who also helmed the second part, ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’. Recently, Matt shared that he has ideas for continuing the franchise which was supposed to end with the latest instalment.
The director revealed that he would like to further explore the story of ‘Bad Ape’, a character that was introduced in the latest part. “The whole idea of Bad Ape is that there are other apes out there, and those apes don't have the benefits of Caesar's leadership. The conflicts of the future are not going to be humans and apes, they will be apes and apes. I wanted to seed that idea because I thought there were a lot more stories and there are characters that I have grown to love”, Matt shared.
‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ has the lead ape Caeser, voiced by Andy Serkis, who has been with the franchise since the start. The character of Bad Ape has been voiced by Steve Zahn. The movie has pooled in $186 million worldwide, till now.
