Rise of the Planet of the Apes sequel heading for production

One of the best film prequels in recent memory is set for a sequel after it was revealed that a follow-up to Rise of the Planet of the Apes would head into production later this summer.

CinemaCon was the setting for the announcement by 20th Century Fox co-chairman Tom Rothman who also discussed the upcoming X-Men film The Wolverine and the action thriller sequel Taken 2.

There’s been no specific details on a release date for Apes though Andy Serkis has signed on to reprise his role as the ape Caesar but director Rupert Wyatt has not been touted to direct again.

Hopefully the studio can convince Wyatt to sign on again after doing so well with the original which has all but resurrected the Planet of the Apes franchise.
