Home » New ‘Planet Of The Apes’ Film Casts ‘It” Bully Owen Teague As Lead Primate

Disney has been pushing for a new Planet of the Apes film since acquiring 20th Century Fox and it now looks like the first major casting has taken place, per Deadline. Owen Teague, best none as one of the bullies in 2017’s It, will lead the new film’s likely plethora of apes, though no details are currently known. Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials director Wes Ball wrote the script, which the studio is said to be very excited about, and will direct. Production is being eyed to begin late this year.

The last film in the franchise came in 2017 with War For the Planet of the Apes, which wrapped up a trilogy beginning with 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
