Script Ideas For The Sequel To ‘Planet Of The Apes’

August 1st, 2001

Liam Cody and Chris Tomkins star in Planet of the Popes.

After the box office success of Planet of the Apes, director Tim Burton needs script ideas for a sequel.

We’ve decided to help him out.

This month, we have assembled the finest script ideas we could think of while walking out of the cinema. Here they are.

  • Planet of the Grapes – An astronaut lands on a planet populated by intelligent grapes, and discovers the only place in the universe where drinking a glass of wine means a sentence of death by over-watering.
  • Planet of the Japes – Where every night is comedy night. (Likely to be the title of Lesley Neilsen’s parody version).
  • Planet of the Snails – An astronaut lands on a planet populated by highly-evovled snails. The snails try to enslave him, but he simply walks away.
  • Planet of the Tapes – An astronaut lands on a planet in the midst of the “Digital/Analogue Conversion Wars”.
  • Planet of the Crepes – A planet populated by intelligent crepes. Stars newcomer Suzette Maplesyrup.
  • Planet of the Dolphins – An astronaut lands on a planet ruled by highly-evolved dolphins, and drowns.
  • Planet of the Capes – Where being a superhero isn’t normal, it’s expected.
  • Planet of the Humans – A documentary.
  • Planet of the Slugs – Just like Planet of the Snails but without the expensive armour costumes. Rated R.
  • Planet of the Three-toed Sloths – An astronaut lands on a planet ruled by highly evolvled lazy three-toed sloths who sleep for up to 19 hours a day. Not much action, but great dream sequences.
  • Planet of the Popes – A planet where there is no evolution or sex before marriage, but plenty of choir boys.
  • Planet of the Drapes – Potentially Tim Burton’s darkest movie yet.
