"Caesar: Rise Of The Apes" @ Mammoth Studios Burnaby

"Where Man Once Stood Supreme- Now Rule The Apes..."

The Fox "Planet Of The Apes" prequel "Caesar: Rise Of The Apes" has opened production offices at Mammoth Studios in Burnaby, BC, prepping for a mid-July start in Vancouver, to be directed by Ruper Wyatt.

"...'Caesar: Rise of the Apes' is centered on genetic research.

'Will' is a doctor trying to cure Alzheimers, a disease that afflicts his father. He's working with monkeys to create a benign virus that can get into brain tissue and restore functionality. After his research is shut down he's left with just one chimp, the child of his most promising subject and Will raises him at home.

Young 'Caesar' is incredibly intelligent for an ape, and over time continues to mutate and evolve, looking less like a chimp and moving on from sign language to actual speech.

Eventually Caesar ends up leading an army of apes in an uprising just as a catastrophe strikes mankind..."
