20th Century Fox has tapped director Rupert Wyatt (The Escapist) to helm a tentatively titled project called Rise of the Apes for a June 24, 2011 release.

Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes was met with a mixed reception back in 2001, but it was still able to gross $180 million domestically. That translates to $253.2 million when adjusting for inflation. A sequel never happened.
