The sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes gets a new writer

05.15.2012

Despite it's rather long title, RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES was a surprise hit last year. So it was fairly certain that the film would get a sequel.

The director, Rupert Wyatt and writers on the first committed to the second installment which would see the apes set to become society's new rulers. Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa were brought back to write a draft, but it also seems that CONTAGION writer Scott Z. Burns has been hired as well.

It's not specified if Burns was brought on to polish the draft from Silver and Jaffa, or if he is on to write his own draft.

As far as the cast is concerned, Serkis will return as Caesar. Not word yet on Franco. No telling if his character is even going to be written into the sequel.
