    An error keeps occurring for some reason, but it works fine on YouTube itself.

    The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Boom! Studios and 20th Century Fox Consumer Products are turning the Rod Serling Planet of the Apes script into a graphic novel called Planet of the Apes: Visionaries. It will be released in August as part of their 50th anniversary celebrations for the franchise this year.

    The graphic novel will use Serling’s screenplay as the basis for the story that will be adapted by The Simpsons writer and comedian Dana Gould. Meanwhile, original concept art and make-up tests will inspire the artwork by Avengers: Origins artist Chad Lewis. Here’s the full art revealed along with the announcement:

    I bought a copy of the OG on VHS around 2000 kind of as a joke and ended up loving it. One of the best silly movies of all time.

    YOU CUT UP HIS BRAIN, YOU BLOODY BABOON!!11!

    To this day, I have a Planet of the Apes poster that I bought in college. My cat jumped up on my desk, looked at the picture and meowed at it. A couple hours later, I found out Charlton Heston was dead.

    I also sometimes used to laugh about the thought of Heston being into NRA so deep because he wanted to be able to avoid the movie coming true

    He doesn't realise he's been on Earth the whole time until the last moment.

    I haven't seen that movie since I was about 8 years old, so I don't really remember it well, but it did bring me one of my favorite Simpsons moments.
