"The Bourne Ultimatum" Writer Hired for "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" Sequel

Posted: May 16th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"The Bourne Ultimatum" Writer Hired for "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" SequelSubmit Comment
20th Century Fox is moving forward with a sequel to "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," which grossed $480 million on a $93 million budget last year. The studio has now hired Scott Z Burns (Contagion, The Bourne Ultimatum) to write the script.

Immediately after the release of the first film, director Rupert Wyatt spoke about his ideas for the sequel. "You could start this story again eight years from where we left off," he explained. "The next generation of apes, those that have come from our protagonists, perhaps going in to a conflict with humans and showing real fear in the same way as going into war for young soldiers, telling their story."

He added: "Or how apes are taking over cities and being moved into human environments and having to interact with them and deal with things that are part of our culture and understand and evolve through them. Spies that are in the employ of the apes, working against humans and humans maybe existing underground, because that's a way they can avoid the virus, coming up above ground wearing gas masks, and maybe that's what dehumanizes them."

The plan is to begin shooting later this year.

Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes was a great movie, it was better than I expected.

Andy Serkis did a amazing perfomance as Censar.

Contagtion was a good movie.

Rupert Wyatt showed Tim Burton how it is done.

Still I hope Wyatt, Serkis and James Franco return for ROTPOTA 2.

Maybe in the sequel, apes will take over the world as human become exiticed by the virus instead of apes destorying the human race.

Rise of the return of the revenge of the planet of the apes was an exellent movie.

They have the groundwork installed for at least 2 more films.
