The director of Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes wants to develop the original film

Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes it was a great adventure film and I liked the story it told. I thought the film was an all-around solid film and said in my review that I would love to see this next series of films that lead up to the original 1968 film.

In Planet of the Apes, Charlton Heston he played an astronaut who crash-lands on Earth in the distant future when the planet is overrun by apes. There’s still a long way to go before we get to that point, but the story leading up to it could be very interesting and interesting.

During an interview with GamesRadar+ and the Inside Total Film podcast, director Wes Ball has spoken about the future of the franchise and would also like to see this next iteration of films based on the 1968 classic, but doesn’t want it to be remade.

Ball said: “I think there are still many, many years in between when the reality of Charlton Heston comes into play, where a spaceship falls from the sky onto a planet full of apes.”

He explained: “The connections between all these films have always been a little vague, they’re not like the other franchises out there that are so absolutely set in stone that you can’t hack things – it’s always been a little vague the connections.

“In my mind, if we had the choice, we wouldn’t go back and redo the 1968 version, but we would build up to it and then start over again, go back and look [the] ’68 version and the franchise up.”

I like this plan and hope this new Apes movie is a success so we can continue the next chapter of stories Ball has launched. This is a new trilogy, but they could go further as they build up to the original film.

As Ball continues: “What we’ve tried to do is open a door to the potential of what we want to explore in the future. All these films are about humans and apes living together or not, how they coexist, the drama and conflict between They.

He continued: “That’s always what makes these movies work, so what people will find is that this isn’t just an ape story, it’s a human story, too, and ultimately, if we’re lucky enough to make more of it, that’s what we want.” will continue: the relationship between these characters, as this will feed itself, there will be a lot of drama and conflicts to explore along the way.”

When asked if he would return to direct the sequel if the studio gave him the green light, Ball said, “Let’s see! We did our best to make it a standalone film, while also delivering the potential and promise of lots more to come – we all have these ideas deep down and hopefully if we’re lucky enough we can continue with these characters and this story. We’ll see where the future takes us.

I think they went above and beyond making it a standalone film as it clearly sets the stage for the story to continue. Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes got me excited about the future of this franchise.
