Publisher Comments:

The original 1968 Planet of the Apes starring Charlton Heston spawned a world-wide cult of devoted fans, along with four movie sequels, two television series, and over $100 million in merchandise sales. This Planet of the Apes tells an all-new story (with echoes of the original) brought up to date by today's most acclaimed creator of cinematic worlds and a state-of-the-art production team. A major release by 20th Century Fox for Summer 2001, this new film stars Mark Wahlberg (The Perfect Storm, Three Kings), Michael Clarke Duncan (The Green Mile), Tim Roth (Four Rooms, Pulp Fiction), and Helena Bonham Carter (Howards End, Fight Club).

The Story: In the year 2029, astronaut Leo Davidson (Wahlberg) boards a pod cruiser on a space station for a "routine" reconnaissance mission. But an abrupt detour through a space time wormhole lands him on a strange planet, where talking apes rule over the human race. With the help of a sympathetic chimpanzee activist named Ari (Bonham-Carter) and a small band of human rebels, Leo leads the effort to evade the advancing Gorilla Army led by General Thade (Roth), and his most trusted warrior, Attar (Michael Clarke Duncan). Now the race is on to reach a sacred temple within the planet's forbidden zone to discover the shocking secrets of mankind's past — and the key to its future.

This book reveals the brilliant filmcraft — from preliminary production designs and character sketches to fully realized scenic art and blueprints, and the final sets and action as photographed. The complete screenplay is included, as well as details of production from casting to post, glimpses behind the creation of the thrilling action and special effects, and insights into Tim Burton's envisioning of this classic story.

With an introduction by Tim Burton.
