Rise of The Planet Of The Apes sequel coming

Andy Serkis back for reboot follow-up, director Rupert Wyatt also returns

With over $450 million worldwide, Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes rightfully surpassed Tim Burton’s lame 2001 reboot at the box office this year, becoming a surprise summer hit. Now, it seems that Fox is ready to follow up that success, as Andy Serkis has now signed up for a sequel, reports Deadline.

Fox is also considering whether to run an Oscar campaign for Serkis’s delicate performance as Caesar. Are you excited about the prospect of a sequel to the film? For those who missed it in the cinemas, the film is out on DVD next month.
