Genesis: Apes

It looks like the Hollywood overlords are planning on bringing another Apes installment to theaters. We get this news this morning from CHUD via Latino Review:

A while ago there were rumblings from 1994 male cheerleading champion Devin over at CHUD about another Planet of the Apes movie called Genesis: Apes. Essentially dead in the water, the idea seems to have some life. Devin follows up on his monkey obsession with news coming straight from Tom Rothman himself:

We are very close at Fox on a new Apes script- this one a kind of prequel story before the first story, with a return to the social thematics that mark the first one, but with an entirely contemporary setting – Earth 2009.

It looks like this film plans to show the day the apes became “aware” of their advancement and the beginnings of the takeover. Whenever you “fill in” the origin story – you have to ensure that it is good in order to do justice to the other films. I certainly hope this film is more well received that Tim Burton’s crack at the franchise.

If I was making this film I’d have a scene where the apes break into an American Apparel and shoplift stretch pants. Now that they’re planning on taking over the planet – no one gets to see their exposed crotches for free. When you’re at the top of the food chain, pants are expected of you.

International friends, would you welcome another Ape film – or is this a universe that should now be left alone.
