It seems that Fox is happy with Matt Reeves’ work on Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, as the director has just been rehired in order to direct the 3rd installment in the series, with sources even saying that a writing position is also being considered.

If the writing position pushes through, Reeves will be sharing duties with Mark Bomback, which should be no problem because the two have previously worked on Dawn, which Bomback had to rewrite when Reeves was brought in to replace Rupert Wyatt.

The still-unnamed sequel is scheduled for a July 17, 2014 release in the UK, with Andy Serkis returning along with series newcomers such as Gary Oldman, Keri Russell and Jason Clarke.
