Third “Apes” Begins Production With Iconic Photo

Production on “War for the Planet of the Apes,” the follow-up to 2011’s “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” and last year’s “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” has begun.

‘Dawn’ director Matt Reeves returns to direct the project and the first photo from the set has been released, a homage to an iconic scene towards the very end of the original 1968 classic. Andy Serkis, Gabriel Chavarria and Woody Harrelson star in the film which boasts a script that Reeves co-wrote with Mark Bomback.

The new film is currently on track for a July 14th 2017 release.
