New 'Planet of the Apes' Movie in the Works, Wes Ball to Direct!

Wes Ball is set to develop and direct a new movie in the Planet of the Apes franchise!

This will mark the first new Planet of the Apes movie since Disney acquired Fox, the studio that originally produced the franchise.

The reboot trilogy that launched in 2011 with origin story Rise of the Planet of the Apes was a smash success for Fox. THR reports that it’s not yet decided if the new movie will be a reboot or an addition to the trilogy.

Wes directed the Maze Runner trilogy, which grossed nearly $1 billion worldwide.
