Shooting For War For The Planet of the Apes Started
The third instalment for the rebooted Planet of the Apes has started filming, according to the director. The movie will be helmed by Matt Reeves who has also helmed the second part of the series, Dawn of the Planet of The Apes. The upcoming film will be titled War for the Planet of the Apes.
Andy Serkis, who plays Caeser, stated, “I know that part of the desire for Matt [Reeves] to do this next movie is about continuing the enjoyment of seeing these apes evolve. So I don’t think we’re going to see a situation where we’re jumping [ahead in time]…It might be three films, It could be four. It could be five. Who knows? But the journey will continue. It might not necessarily be summarized or completely fulfilled in this next one. The point being, eventually we know that we’re going to end up back at ‘The Planet of the Apes,’ but whether it’s this film or not, I don’t know”.
The actor spoke with Comingsoon about the third instalment and said, “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”.
