Matt Reeves Will Direct Third ‘Apes’ Prequel
It’s the Dawn of a new era for fans of the Planet of the Apes films, and Matt Reeves will stick around to see it through.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox has hired Reeves to direct the third film in the rebooted Planet of the Apes series. Reeves is hard at work on finishing the upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, due in theaters on July 11. It’s a big vote of confidence in the director, given that Dawn hasn’t seen the light of day quite yet — although the film’s first official trailer certainly looked promising.
