Hi, what are you looking for?


20th Century Fox In Need For New Apes Director!

So the rumours are true; Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes director Rupert Wyatt has declined the offer to direct the sequel. So who will fit the bill? Find out potential directors here!

It is official; Rupert Wyatt has dropped out of Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes! But who will be his replacement? Well according to 20th Century Fox’s production president Emma Watts there is a small list of directors that are being considered. These potentials include; Matt Reeves, J Blakeson, Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, Jeff Nichols and surprisingly Guillermo del Toro.

Guillermo del Toro is a surprising choice because of his already busy work schedule. What with Pacific Rim being converted to 3D and the pilot for the Strain TV series coming soon; del Toro literally has too much to do, therefore we doubt he will have time to take on this franchise. But in the words of Bieber… “never say never”

Matt Reeves is most likely the go to guy as he has recently dropped out of making the new Twilight Zone film for Warner Bros. However, both Blakeson and Carlos Fresnadillo are equally good choices depending on their work schedules.

But with the released date being May 23rd 2014, it looks like Watts will have to find someone and fast! Who do you think would be the perfect candidate to take on the Apes franchise?
