The powers-that-be at Fox have been circulating an image today in honor of director Matt Reeves’ upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes along with the tagline “Evolution becomes revolution,” and we have a peek at it for you right here.
Mind you, this is not an official still or bit of artwork from the film but is instead a 1992 art piece by Albert Watson titled “Monkey with Gun.” Still, it more than conveys the message, does it not?
Matt Reeves, stepping into the shoes originally worn by Rupert Wyatt, is directing the sequel to Fox’s 2011 hit Rise of the Planet of the Apes, with the new movie continuing the story of how ultra-intelligent simian Caesar presides over the fall of human civilization.
Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa, who penned the first installment, wrote the initial draft for Dawn. Scott Burns had written a draft for Wyatt, but when Reeves came on board, the studio and producers wanted something tailored specifically for him and hired Mark Bomback to do a rewrite. It should also be noted that Bomback did some uncredited script doctoring on Rise.
Andy Serkis is returning as Caesar, and Peter Chernin is back as producer. Fox has set a May 23, 2014, release date.
Look for more as it comes.
