Mark Bomback has been given writing duties on THE DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. It’s unclear whether he will be doing a completely new draft or just re-writing, but the writer certainly has the chops to do either.
Story is being kept under wraps, but we’re guessing there will be apes and rebellious acts abound.
Producing will be Peter Chernin, Dylan Clark, Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa.
Bomback, a member of the 2009 Black List, has written scripts for “Total Recall” and “Unstoppable”. He also did a draft for the upcoming “The Wolverine”.
He is repped by WME.
