"It is unclear whether the latest Apes project is meant to be a new reboot or an extension of the previous film series". Matt Reeves directed the final two films, and now he's helming The Batman, starring Robert Pattinson. It is also unknown how it will relate to the original film series, which began with the 1968 Charlton Heston starrer "Planet of the Apes".

The Hollywood Reporter has reported that Fox has hired Maz Runner director, Wes Ball to develop and direct a brand new Planet of the Apes movie.

Before the Disney merger, Ball had been prepping an adaptation of "Mouse Guard", which was eventually scrapped. Although the film never found a home, Disney still saw Ball as a rising talent, eventually eyeing him for the "Planet of the Apes" position.

With that in mind, it would make sense for Ball's take to serve as a complete reboot of the franchise. Besides for its groundbreaking motion-capture visual effects, the trilogy set up a remarkable universe that deserves to be revisited even though that last film wrapped up the story arc of its main character, the super-intelligent Caesar (mo-capped by Andy Serkis).

Inside, there's a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor , 4GB of RAM , and 128GB of storage plus a MicroSD card slot. The phone has NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner with a notification LED ring around it.

Wes directed the Maze Runner trilogy, which grossed almost $1 billion worldwide.

Since Disney acquired FOX earlier this year for $73.1 billion, it now owns many other established franchises under its umbrella.

"Planet of the Apes" was drawn from the original source material, which was a French science fiction novel written by Pierre Boule.

The newest trilogy of movies, comprised of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Daybreak of the Planet of the Apes and Conflict for the Planet of the Apes, drew to a detailed in 2017, and Iger is reportedly eager for one more reboot as quickly as attainable.
