Much Talked About Director Tapped for ‘Planet of the Apes’ Prequel

A film I’m still dying to see is The Escapist, a thriller that’s been buzzed about at various film festivals over the past year. Apparently, it’s pretty awesome. So hearing that director Rupert Wyatt will be getting behind the camera for 20th Century Fox’s Planet of the Apes prequel is quite exciting news. Deadline New York reports that there’s no start date, but Wyatt’s come aboard to develop to direct. The script’s by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver. No other details are available at this time — but it’s gonna be hard to make a worse version than Tim Burtons.
