Caesar is back! Or is he… could be a totally different primate this time, I guess.

Never the less, Deadline confirms a rumor Moviehole floated a while back that a new “Planet of the Apes” is in the works from the new guard at Disney – who, of course, now house the old Twentieth Century Fox properties.

The hush-hush project will be directed by Wes Ball (“Monster’s Ball”) and as the trade confirmed today, will star Owen Teague (“It”) as the new lead ape.

More soon.
