David Ellis the director or Final Destination 2 and The Final Destination has been brought in to direct the film War Monkeys. He replaces Kevin Munroe who directed the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles CGI film.
The film was written by Cleve Nettles and the story follows two guys trapped in an underground research facility with military-trained Rhesus monkeys. How awesome is that!?
The project was described by Munroe as "an older, meaner brother of [an] Amblin [production]. It's real horror with real scary elements. You've got real monsters here with the monkeys. But the characters are a modern day Abbott and Costello. In the same vein of Shaun of the Dead but scarier.... like if Quentin Tarantino did Gremlins."
The movie sounds like it will be a lot of fun, and I'm looking forward to seeing what Ellis has planned for it.
