    Oh man, I find this damn game addictive. Beware! I am still trying to get to the end. I think it's very cool.

    They are? Tim Burton destroyed the franchise, as is his wont. Link?

    Rise of the Apes Begins Production

    As reported by the Canwest News Service, production on the Planet of the Apes prequel reboot, Rise of the Apes, has begun in Vancouver. They are, however, referring to the film as Caesar: Rise of the Apes.
    The following are some highlights of their article:

    * Production has started at Mammoth Studios in Burnaby.

    * The seventh feature in Fox's Planet of the Apes franchise will be directed by Rupert Wyatt, who did an acclaimed British prison-break movie, The Escapist. The stars are James Franco (Milk, General Hospital), Andy Serkis (Lord of the Rings) and Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire).

    * Serkis is an inspired choice: he already donned a furry costume to portray King Kong in Peter Jackson's 2005 version of the monster movie classic. A New Zealand company co-owned by Jackson, Weta Digital, will be doing the digital effects for the film, including digitally animated apes.

    * Through the wonders of the modern age, Weta will be working via the "digital pipeline" in New Zealand while filming is going on in and around Vancouver. The interior sets are at Mammoth Studios in Burnaby, but there will be lots of exterior shoots around the Lower Mainland, which will become San Francisco for the film.

    * The screenplay is by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, who co-wrote The Relic and Eye For an Eye. Silver also wrote The Hand That Rocks The Cradle.

    * What makes Planet of the Apes so irresistible to 20th Century Fox, the studio that has done them all? The series has made tons of money. According to Wikipedia, the 1968 Planet of the Apes cost $5.8 million to make and earned $32,589,624 in the U.S. The website Box Office Mojo says the 2001 Planet of the Apes cost $100 million and earned $362 million worldwide.

    * Caesar's budget should be in the $90 million range. It is slated for a June 24, 2011 release.

    Caesar: Rise of the Apes Script Review - SPOILERS GALORE (So Be Warned!)
    Impossibly Funky has posted a SPOILER-FILLED script review of Caesar: Rise of the Apes.
    Comparing the script to a cross between Splice and Flowers for Algernon (with a dash of Michel Crichton's Next), the review notes, "Dr. Will Rodman works to improve the brain functions of chimpanzees with hopes of curing his father of Alzheimer's.... When a turn of events leads to the apes going... well... apeshit, Will's program gets scrapped and all of the apes euthanized with the exception of a second generation chimp, the titular Caesar. He's raised by Will and his father (who gets a good dose of drugs that cures him of his Alzheimer's). Meanwhile, Will goes back to the drawing board at work, trying a new compound on mice. Things start to fall apart when the drugs lose their potency -- the mice start forgetting how to run their mazes as Will's father begins to lose his marbles again. When he's nearly hit by a car while wandering through his neighborhood, Caesar springs into action. His defense of Will's father goes too far and he ends up in an animal sanctuary along with a few more chimps, a trio of orangutans, and a gorilla.

    "While Caesar learns the intricacies of social interaction amongst apes, Will strikes up a relationship with Caesar's vet, Dr. Stewart... Back at Will's lab, a new batch of chimps has been brought in. A new compound makes the chimps highly intelligent, especially one sinister simian, but has one tricky side-effect. It kills any human unlucky to come into contact with it and spreads like the flu, especially after a carrier takes an international flight (Cough-Twelve Monkeys-cough).

    "Caesar unites the apes, locks up his keepers, and learns to speak. The apes make their way across San Francisco, releasing the chimps from the lab and at the city zoo. When he sees that another ape that bit him has started to get smarter he deduces that his blood is the key. In a scene that should be shot like The Last Supper, Caesar shares his blood amongst the apes.

    "They're pursued across the Golden Gate bridge, escaping into the woods. The power dynamics amongst the apes as well as the impending doom of the human race leave the film wide open for the next chapter."
