Will George Taylor turn up in the next Apes movie?

Will George Taylor turn up in the next Apes movie?

Despite the suggestion at the conclusion of “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” that that might be where things are headed, the film’s director – and helmer of the next instalment – Matt Reeves says the next film won’t link up to the 1968 original.

Seems we’ve a long way to go before we’re treated to a digital version of Charlton Heston.

“I think some people assume that we’re going to get back to the ’68 film, like, next”, Reeves tells Cinema Blend. “And actually… no. To me, the cool thing – people have asked me, ‘Isn’t it boring, because you know how it’s going to end?’ And I say that’s the best part about it. This world is nothing like that world. How do we get from here to there? Instead of being a story about ‘what,’ it becomes a story about how and why, which is all about character.

“And if this is Caesar’s story, and the story of the mythic character that he becomes, then as we know in the apes timeline, Caesars begat other Caesars, and it’s a generational story. This is an epic journey toward the trajectory of that story.

“It could be many movies. I think there are a lot of interesting stories that come, not only from Caesar, but from what comes after Caesar, his children, and his children’s children. What happens when humans return? All of those stories… it’s so rich. And I think that it’s so cool that we know how it ends without knowing how we get there. Because that becomes the fuel for these stories. So it’s not going to be next, for sure. We are going to take a while to get there.”

The next “Planet of the Apes” film is due in theaters in 2016.
