With "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" smashing all early estimates and scoring a very impressive $54 million opening weekend, talk of a sequel is already flying around.

Director Rupert Wyatt recently spoke with Bleeding Cool about some of his potential ideas for a storyline, including a possible ode to a classic Kubrick film "'Full Metal Jacket' with apes... you could start this story again eight years from where we left off, 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 in this day and age, telling their story."

Another possibility is something more akin to a spy film - "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 dehumanises them."

While searching for a medical cure, one human innocently unleash the events that leads to the apes taking over.

While RISE OF THE PLANET OF APES is more or less a remake of the great CONQUEST OF THE PLANET OF THE APES (1972), the new film can also be seen as a prequel/reboot/sequel. Taking in consideration the whole time travel aspect of the original series and RISE OF THE PLANET OF APES works perfectly has what might have actually happened.

The first two third of the film is extremely well paced and interesting. The way the "revolution" of apes is presented is actually kinda believable.

Isaac and I really enjoyed this one. A very good film of one of my most beloved franchise.

During the Visual Effects Society summit over the weekend, Fox’s president of post-production Ted Gagliano revealed that their recent sci-fi hit "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" had a different ending in mind to what was originally shot.

SPOILERS AHEAD.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gagliano says the filmmakers originally thought James Franco’s character should die, then changed that decision.

Franco then spent a few hours shooting the alternative goodbye to the ape Caesar (Andy Serkis) over the July 4th weekend - just one month out from a wide international release.

Naturally this added more complications to an already challenging post-production schedule that was already laden with extensive visual effects work. He adds that "we are going to sell (the alternative clip) down the road” which means we'll likely see it on the disc release.

20th Century Fox has signed on Andy Serkis to reprise his mo-cap role of the lead ape Caesar in at least one sequel to this Summer's sci-fi hit "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" says Deadline.

Serkis had only signed on for one movie and the deal reportedly ensures he'll be back for multiple future installments. Both director Rupert Wyatt and screenwriters Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver's original deal had sequel options which have been picked up.

Peter Chernin and Dylan Clark will produce but things are still in very early stages and it's unsure if other cast members will be back. The studio also intends to wage an Oscar campaign for Serkis' work in 'Apes'. Serkis has also delivered an acclaimed mo-cap performance in "The Adventures of Tintin" opening at Xmas in the United States.

Twentieth Century Fox has a name for its sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is set to hit theaters on May 23, 2014. Rupert Wyatt, who helmed the 2011 smash, returns to direct.



In addition to Gary Oldman and Joel Kinnaman, the RoboCop remake is now going to star Samuel L. Jackson. This guy is destined to make his mark on every franchise out there, it seems.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jackson will play a powerful television mogul named Pat Novak. Apparently, he's a heavy-hitter in the world of RoboCop. Kinnaman, as you know, is Alex Murphy/RoboCop and Oldman is his creator.

Jose Padilha is directing.

It's official, "Cloverfield" and "Let Me In" director Matt Reeves is set to helm Fox’s much anticipated sequel "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" says The Hollywood Reporter.

"Rise of the Planet of the Apes" director Rupert Wyatt bowed out of reprising his job on the follow-up last month, sending the studio into a flurry as it rushed around to quickly secure a replacement.

A round of meetings with eligible directors took place and Reeves came out on top. He's expected to stick to the studio's schedule of getting the film in cinemas by May 2014.

Many have assumed that, eventually, FOX's rebooted "Planet of the Apes" franchise will tie back into the events seen in the original 1968 sci-fi classic - even as soon as the upcoming third film in the series following this month's "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes".

That may not be the case after all according to 'Dawn' director Matt Reeves. Speaking with Cinema Blend, Reeves was asked how many more films FOX can do before the audience comes back around to the events in the original 1968 film. Reeves replied:

"I think some people assume that we're going to get back to the '68 film, like, next. And actually… no. To me, the cool thing – people have asked me, ‘Isn't it boring, because you know how it's going to end?'

And I say that's the best part about it. This world is nothing like that world. How do we get from here to there? Instead of being a story about ‘what,' it becomes a story about how and why, which is all about character.

And if this is Caesar's story, and the story of the mythic character that he becomes, then as we know in the apes timeline, Caesars begat other Caesars, and it's a generational story. This is an epic journey toward the trajectory of that story.

It could be many movies. I think there are a lot of interesting stories that come, not only from Caesar, but from what comes after Caesar, his children, and his children's children. What happens when humans return? All of those stories… it's so rich.

And I think that it's so cool that we know how it ends without knowing how we get there. Because that becomes the fuel for these stories. So it's not going to be next, for sure. We are going to take a while to get there."

Filmmaker Matt Reeves has teased a big reveal for "War for the Planet of the Apes," the third film in the rebooted "Planet of the Apes" franchise, to come this Sunday.

Reeves is directing from a script he co-wrote with Mark Bomback, and he dropped the movie's official logo in a tweet a few hours ago. He also suggests that you tune in to this Sunday's episode of AMC's "The Walking Dead" for a special announcement.

As the film isn't due to open until July 14th 2017, it certainly won't be the first trailer - we're a good year away from that yet. Instead, it will likely be a featurette of some kind.

Filming on the project bagan a month ago and in this entry, a fragile peace has been achieved between the humans and Caesar's growing nation of genetically evolved apes.
