[Michael] Wilson was not, however, the first to rework the script after Zanuck gave the film the go-ahead in September 1966. Almost immediately Jacobs hired a young American writer called Charles Eastman, with whom he and Schaffner had already had lengthy discussions. They wanted him to develop the main characters and build up the suspense. But instead of reworking the existing drafts, Eastman took the film in a completely different direction.  Eastman did a lot of research on apes and took a lot of photographs at the zoo, but he never actually wrote about them. In December he submitted twenty-seven pages, in which the crew never quite manage to leave the spaceship, and was promptly replaced by Michael Wilson.
