'Cloverfield' director Matt Reeves to helm 'Planet of the Apes 3'

Audiences haven’t seen Dawn of the Planet of the Apes yet, but 20th Century Fox has already decided that director Matt Reeves will return to direct the third installment in the rebooted Apes franchise.

Reeves, known for directing the experimental monster thriller Cloverfield and the English-language remake of Let Me In (which he also wrote), is currently in post-production on Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (out July 11, 2014) which finds the ape Caeser (Andy Serkis) in a more powerful position, having amassed an army that threatens to wipe out the remains of the human population. Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, and Keri Russell star in Dawn as the humans fighting against the ape forces.


'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' lands 'Cloverfield' director Matt Reeves

If you think a single giant marauding alien monster or a child vampire are scary, what about an army of intelligent primates?

EW has confirmed that Cloverfield and Let Me In director Matt Reeves is finalizing a deal to direct Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the sequel to 2011′s Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which itself was a prequel-reboot of the original Planet of the Apes films from the 1960s and 70s. Reeves replaces Rise director Rupert Wyatt, who reportedly left the project due to concerns about Fox’s announced release date of May 23, 2014.

Andy Serkis will reprise his performance-capture role as lead intelli-ape Caesar. No word yet whether costars James Franco and Freida Pinto will also be returning.

Deadline first reported the story.
