Along with Joe Hartwick Jr. and Jason Reed, Jaffa and Silver are also producing; Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping are the executive producers.
In addition to Freya Allen, Peter Macon, Eka Darville, Kevin Durand, Travis Jeffery, Neil Sandilands, Sara Wiseman, Ras-Samuel Welda’abzgi, Lydia Peckham, and William H.

A Pierre Boule novel served as the inspiration for the original Planet of the Apes movie. The 1968 film starred Charlton Heston as an astronaut who crash-landed on a world inhabited by sentient apes only to find that he was actually on Earth after a nuclear war had decimated the planet. The wildly popular movie spawned a number of Planet of the Apes sequels, a TV show, and a Tim Burton remake in 2001 before Fox revived the property with a trilogy that debuted with 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes and starred Andy Serkis.
