Rise of the Planet of the Apes could unfold as a trilogy according to writers

08.12.2011

Why cookie rocket? Does it matter? Did you guys love RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES? I didn't expect it to get the praise that it did. I only heard one person say it was terrible. When I told them that everyone I talked to liked it, they laughed at me. I WASN'T TELLING A JOKE MOFO!

Regardless of your opinion of the apes, it seems that the screenwriters of the film, Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver would like to make this thing a trilogy.

If you've already seen the movie, then you know it sets its self up for it. I won't go into it for those who haven't ventured out to the theater. You guys can talk amongst yourselves about the ending and plot points and what not.

Here's what the married scribes told EW:

Amanda Silver: I’m touching wood, because I’m superstitious! We definitely have ideas for where the sequel — plural, where the sequels — would take us. And those were kind of built into –

Rick Jaffa: — the construction of the narrative already. There hasn’t been an official discussion yet about a sequel, because I think everyone still doesn’t want to jinx where we are. But we definitely have ideas.

AS: When we started this, we knew that this movie would stand on its own, and we designed it that way. But if it didn’t stand on its own, we pictured a trilogy that would start with this movie.

EW also mentioned the title and ask them what other titles they have planned for future apes films:

RJ: We’re gonna have to figure that one out. That’s a great question. We do have a good sense of what will be in the sequel. Maybe in 20 years, the last one will be called Success of the Planet of the Apes.

AS: It’s that B-movie flair, that excitement. We haven’t found the cheesy-but-fun noun that would fit the action that we’re seeing.

RJ: Maybe Revenge.

Extra Tidbit: Enjoy these Why Cookie Rocket? memes.
