I read that another Planet of the Apes movie is in the works. A prequel this time, and it's starring James Franco. I like him as an actor, he was great in Pineapple Express. But I also liked Mark Wahlberg and thought he would be good in Planet of the Apes; after all, he was great in Boogie Nights. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, but I am not expecting much. The original movie will never be equaled. no matter how good the ape costumes are, no matter how much CGI they throw in there, and no matter how many comic book like action sequences they use.
