It seems 20th Century Fox’s Planet of the Apes prequel is coming closer to fruition as Rupert Wyatt’s name has been reported as the project’s director.

The news came from Deadline New York, which says there’s still no firm start date for the project, which is based on a script by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (co-writers of Eye for an Eye and The Relic).
With no other details available at this time, we’ll be keeping a close watch on how this one plays out. In the meantime let’s revisit this classic scene from the original:
