Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes announced, launches Freya Allan, for release in 2024

Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes is the official title of the upcoming sequel from 20th Century Studios. The Disney-owned company has unveiled a teaser for its fourth entry in the Planet of the Apes reboot franchise, which is slated for a 2024 release window. Wes Ball – best known for the Maze Runner movies – is attached to the production, from a screenplay by a group of four. Additionally, the studio announced the main cast of Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes, namely Owen Teague (It), Peter Macon (Family Guy) and Freya Allan, best known for playing Ciri in Netflix’s The Witcher series.

Plot details are scarce, with the only information being that the sequel takes place years after the events of 2017’s War for the Planet of the Apes, directed by Matt Reeves. Shortly before its release, however, the Batman filmmaker reportedly expressed interest in making more ape movies, with Steve Zahn’s (The White Lotus) Bad Ape setting up a potential story for the future. With Reeves signed on to the DC Comics movie, plans changed in late 2019, putting Ball in charge of Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes.

“‘Planet of the Apes’ is one of the most iconic and legendary sci-fi franchises in cinematic history, as well as being an indelible part of our studio’s legacy,” said Steve Asbell, president of 20th Century Studios, in a prepared statement to Deadline. . “With Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes, we are privileged to continue the series’ tradition of imaginative and thought-provoking filmmaking, and we look forward to sharing Wes’ extraordinary vision for this new chapter with audiences in 2024.”

Josh Friedman (Terminator: Dark Fate), Rick Jaffa (Mulane), Amanda Silver (Jurassic World) and Patrick Aison (Prey) collaborated on the script for Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes.

Based on the 1963 novel by Pierre Boulle, the Planet of the Apes film and television franchise centers on the conflict between humans and intelligent apes as they battle for control. The films were finally rebooted in 2011, with Rupert Wyatt’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which was well received and grossed $481.8 million (about Rs. 3,929 crore) worldwide. Reeves came on board to direct his follow-ups with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes in 2014 and War for the Planet of the Apes in 2017. The films pulled in $708.8 million (about Rs. 5,778 crore) and 490 $.7 million (about Rs. 4,000 crore), respectively, at the global box office.
