Matt Reeves has signed on to direct Planet of the Apes 3

Matt Reeves cannot get enough of those apes. The director has officially signed on to helm the third film in the PLANET OF THE APES reboot series. I have no idea what the title will be but it promises to be repetitive and long.

The sequel, DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES also under the control of Captain Reeves has yet to hit theaters. Andy Serkis returns to mo-cap the hell out of a story centered on:

Caesar, the intelligent ape that led the breakout from a lab before much of the human race was wiped out at the close of the first film. The survivors square off against Caesar’s growing army in the second film.

That flick starring Serkis, Gary Oldman, Jason Clarke and Keri Russell will release on July 11th during the Summer blockbusters of 2014.

Reeves will also take on writing duties with DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES co-scribe Mark Bomback.

Extra Tidbit: Lizzy Caplan is not included. Sorry. At least not that I know of anyway...
