Planet of The Apes Prequel?

Rumors of a "Planet of the Apes" prequel have been swirling around, and according to CHUD, the rumors are very close to becoming reality.  "Genesis: Apes" is the title that 20th Century Fox has for their not yet completed script.  The film will focus around Caesar, and ape that was first to master speech.

Tom Rothman of Fox was shown this weekend in an interview during showings of "Planet of the Apes" on Fox Movie Channel and said, "We are very close at Fox on a new Apes script- this one a kind of prequel story before the first story, with a return to the social thematics that mark the first one, but with an entirely contemporary setting - Earth 2009."
