Planet of the Apes is an American science fiction media franchise consisting of films, books, television series, comics, and other media about a world in which humans and intelligent apes clash for control.

The series began with French author Pierre Boulle‘s 1963 novel La Planète des Singes, translated into English as Planet of the Apes or Monkey Planet. The 1968 film adaptation, Planet of the Apes, was a critical and commercial hit, initiating a series of sequels, tie-ins, and derivative works. Arthur P. Jacobs produced the series under APJAC Productions until his death in 1973; since then 20th Century Fox has owned the franchise.

Four sequels followed the original film between 1970 and 1973: Beneath the Planet of the Apes, Escape from the Planet of the Apes, Conquest of the Planet of the Apes, and Battle for the Planet of the Apes. They did not approach the critical acclaim of the original, but were commercially successful. The series also spawned two television series in 1974 and 1975. Plans for a film remake stalled in “development hell” for over ten years before Tim Burton‘s Planet of the Apes was released in 2001. A new reboot film series commenced in 2011 with Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which was followed by Dawn of the Planet of the Apes in 2014; another sequel, titled War for the Planet of the Apes, is planned for a 2017 release. Other media and merchandising tie-ins include books, comics, video games, and toys.

Planet of the Apes has received particular attention for its treatment of race, which critics consider its primary theme. Critics have also written on its Cold War and animal rights themes. The series has had a wide influence on subsequent films, media, and art, as well as popular culture and political discourse.

blob-night-fright

From the Press Release… baby.

-Pascal Degove, Managing Director of Goldcrest Films (Goldcrest) today announced that Goldcrest will co-produce sci-fi thriller The Blob alongside producers Richard Saperstein and Brian Witten and co-financiers Taewon Entertainment & A-List Corporation. A remake of the 1958 sci-fi classic about an alien life-form that threatens a small town, the film will be directed by Simon West with principal photography set to begin this summer. Taewon Entertainment & A-List Corporation, based in Korea, will co-finance as their first major English-language project.

Goldcrest, which is also handling global sales and distribution, will launch the film at the upcoming European Film Market in Berlin.

Director Simon West’s films include Con Air starring Nic Cage, The General’s Daughter starring John Travolta, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider starring Angelina Jolie. All made over $100 million domestically, opened at number 1, or both. West also served as an executive producer on the Oscar nominated Black Hawk Down and his television company has produced acclaimed series such as Fox’s Keen Eddie, the CBS series Close To Home, Fox’s Human Target and the NBC series The Cape. West most recently directed the action packed remake of The Mechanic starring Jason Statham and Ben Foster and Expendables 2, starring Statham, Stallone, Willis and many others.

Goldcrest Post (home to Todd Haynes’ Carol) under Managing Director Tim Spitzer will be providing picture and sound post production services and visual effects under supervisor Chris Haney (Avatar, Avengers Assemble).

Jack Harris, 96-year-old producer of the original 1958 film, was recently awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The multi-hyphenate mogul will Executive Produce along with Judith Parker Harris, Shara Kay, and Laurence Freed. Pascal Degove and Nick Quested will Executive Produce for Goldcrest; Tae Won Chung will Executive Produce for Taewon Entertainment and Ju Young You for A-List Corporation. Michael Roban, Michael Harpster, Kyu C. Lee, Armen Aghaeian, Edward Mokhtarian, Geno Tazioli, Holly Kobzina and Paul Harris Boardman are also Executive Producers.

Pascal Degove, Managing Director Goldcrest Films said: “Simon West has a unique gift for blending cutting edge effects, awesome visual spectacle and a hint of humour. He’s the perfect choice to reimagine The Blob and we’re so excited to be partnering with him.”

Simon West “With modern CGI we can now fully realize the potential of The Blob. The world I create will be totally believable, immersive and emotionally satisfying. It’s a thrill to introduce an enduring icon to a wider audience and a whole new era of fans.”

Producers Richard Saperstein and Brinan Witten commented, “We grew up on The Blob. Simon West has a terrific and terrifying vision for bringing this iconic outer-space creature to life for a new generation. We’re grateful to Jack Harris for the opportunity to reintroduce a classic franchise, and to Goldcrest and Taewon for joining us on this journey.”

Jack Harris says, “May the inclusion of Pascal Degove and his Goldcrest team ignite today’s audiences as the historically, astounding original BLOB did.” Judith Parker Harris has produced and directed over 3,000 TV commercials.

Saperstein and Witten most recently produced Cell, based on the bestselling novel by Stephen King, which stars John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson, which will be released later this year. The producers are represented by attorney Bill Grantham of Rufus-Isaacs, Acland, & Grantham LLP.
