According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes picks up many years after War for the Planet of the Apes, the 2017 feature that concluded the previous trilogy and used motion capture technology to tell the origin story of Caesar, a chimp that leads the simians toward revolution.

Joe Hartwick Jr. Jaffa, Silver and Jason Reed are producing, with Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping serving as executive producers. “Planet of the Apes is one of the most iconic and storied science fiction franchises in film history, as well as being an indelible part of our studio’s legacy,” Steve Asbell, president of 20th Century Studios, said in a statement. “With Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes we are privileged to continue the series’ tradition of imaginative, thought-provoking cinema, and can’t wait to share Wes’ extraordinary vision for this new chapter with audiences in 2024.”

Development on a new instalment of the franchise was announced back in 2019. Based on the novel by Pierre Boulle, Planet of The Apes was first adapted for the screen in 1968. After a number of sequels and a television series, the franchise was rebooted in 2011 with Rise of The Planet of The Apes, starring Andy Serkis as Caesar. The first film, directed by Rupert Wyatt, was followed by two sequels, Dawn of The Planet of The Apes and War for The Planet of The Apes, which were directed by Matt Reeves.

Kingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes is slated to arrive in theaters in 2024, with production set to begin next month.
