Serling stated in an interview with Marvel Comics Planet of the Apes magazinefirst published in August The King Brothers had a notion about doing the Pierre Boulle book as a nickle-and-dime picture.
I was convinced that it could be done and at the time, as I recall, I did a whole treatment for them, a scene-by-scene breakdown of how we would lick the problem. They ultimately discarded it because of the ape population. But it contained within its structure a walloping science fiction idea.
Jacobs became involved is not clear. Interviewed in DecemberJacobs said: Arthur read it and was immediately struck by it, called Richard Zanuckwho was, I believe, in London at the time. And he did, he [optioned the rights] for Arthur. Zanuck was so intrigued with this thirty-second synopsis on the phone that he never really stopped to consider the problem of actually turning the book into a film.
Lee Thompson and I have acquired the rights to make this film You are, of course, the first actor to whom this property has been submitted, and Lee and I feel you will share our enthusiasm for what we think can be one of the most exciting films ever made As the book is coming out shortly, we want to effect an immediate distribution arrangement, so if you have any interest whatsoever, I would greatly appreciate if you would cable me.
Picker reportedly lobbied for the company to finance the movie but could not convince his fellow executives that it was a viable project.
I was told by Blake to go, not to worry about money.
It was going to be a big one. My earliest version of the script featured an ape city, much like New York. It was a metropolis. Everything related to anthropoid. The automobiles, the buildings, the elevators, the rooms, the furniture. Arthur said it could be done but not for that kind of money.
Either way, Serling was reporting jointly to Jacobs as producer and Edwards as director by April and took up the development of a workable script. The whole thing was to make an audience believe it and take it seriously.
Mine was a very true adaptation of the original material. Actually, it was not an adaptation. Thomas ultimately escapes, along with Nova and his crewmate LaFever, back to Earth, which is inhabited by apes.
John Thomas, a tall broad-shouldered man in his mid-thirties, is the captain of the mission; William Dodge, a stocky man in his twenties; and Paul LaFever, a soft-spoken, introspective man in his forties. They have traveled several light years to reach an unknown planet orbiting the giant star Betelgeuse.
Descending to the planet in a small pod, they feel as if they have discovered paradise, and climb out of their spacesuits to take a swim in an unspoiled lake. At the beach, however, they find the footprint of a woman, and find primitive people living among the trees. Dodge considers setting himself up as king, with seven wives one for each day of the weekwhile Thomas exchanges smiles with Nova.
LaFever warns both of them about Cortez and the Aztecs.Caesar is a fictional character in the Planet of the Apes leslutinsduphoenix.com is the leader and later ruler of the apes in both the original and the reboot series. He does not appear in the film. Original series. Born Milo, named after his parents' friend Dr.
Milo, Caesar first appeared in Escape from the Planet of the Apes as the son of talking chimpanzees Cornelius and Zira after they. Born in a research lab, raised by a suburban couple, and banished to an animal rescue ranch after he attacks a neighbor, a super-intelligent "alpha male" chimp leads fellow apes in a rebellion.
Director Rupert Wyatt has quite a bit to be proud of with his resurrection of the chimp genre, "Rise of the Planet of the Apes".
With all the makings of a cult classic/sci fi epic, this film--on the surface about a sort of SuperApe--Caesar (in the vein of William Shakespeare's play, "Julius Caesar", and very applicable to the film) is a success.
