For a couple of weeks now, word has been circulating that Matt Reeves was in heavy talks to take on The Batman as the flicks new director. Yesterday, Warner Bros. made the official announcement.
Press Release Award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios is pleased to announce that Dawn of the Planet of the Apes cast members Andy Serkis (The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises, The Dark Knight) and Keri Russell (The Americans, Felicity), along with film director Matt Reeves (Let Me In, Felicity), will make an exclusive signing appearance at the BOOM! Studios booth during WonderCon in Anaheim, California, on Saturday, April 19. BOOM! Studios is the official publisher of Planet of the Apes comics.
The Planet of the Apes franchise has seen a form of a resurgance in the last couple of years that started with Rise of the Planet of the Apes and will continue in 2014 with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Well it seems like the Planet of the Apes will receive another long title as a third movie is already in the works.
