Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes Reveals Concept Art and Cast, Arrives in 2024
It's been in development for some time now, but we finally have some concrete details regarding the next "Planet of the Apes" movie. Officially titled "Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes," the film will be directed by Wes Ball ("The Maze Runner"), with production set to get underway next month, with release set for 2024.
20th Century Studios released this logline, "This film starts an all-new chapter in the 'Planet of the Apes' saga, picking up many years after the conclusion of 2017's 'War for the Planet of the Apes.'" So it seems this will be sticking with the continuity of the most recent trilogy, which is, in itself, telling.
Concept art of the film was released and shows us that the world of the apes looks downright prosperous, with a compelling image of an ape on a horse with a large bird nearby. The title treatment looks very much like the classic films from the '60s and '70s, providing a throwback vibe with this new entry, and an encouraging first look at what Ball has in mind.
