Don’t know how we missed this, but hiding within an article over at Variety 4 days ago it was revealed that David R. Ellis is in negotiations to replace Kyle Newman in the $20 million comicbook adaptation of War Monkeys. Printed by Dark Horse Comics, the story follows a janitor who, during a Christmas holiday, gets trapped in an underground research facility with military-trained Rhesus monkeys. Ellis is developing Shark Night 3D after getting behind the camera for The Final Destination, Final Destination 2, Snakes on a Plane and Cellular.
