Planet of the CG Apes
Fox plans to revive the Planet of the Apes series with a prequel currently under the title "Rise of the Apes" however the catch is the movie will be computer animated. Why they feel the need to bring back the franchise is beyond me, after the failed and flawed Burton remake from 2001.
The idea of a prequel seems pointless, and it being computer animated doesn't exactly boost my confidence of interest. Sometimes all you can do is ask ... WHY ?!? There is no need for this. What makes it even worst is that its happening to such a classic movie franchise. I still remember watching all of the originals when the Sci-Fi Channel would have Planet of the Ape marathons.
Dear Hollywood, please quit wrecking everything that I love from childhood! That is all.
