‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ Writers Timeline Sequel

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

One of the great things about Rise of the Planet of the Apes was that we all thought we knew how the film would end. Everyone was dead wrong.

Rise screenwriters Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver recently chatted it up on The Q&A with Jeff Goldsmith where they revealed plans for the sequel. While we know humanity will eventually become near extinct, what perpetuated the switch and will bridge the second prequel that will lead into the original Planet of the Apes?

We’re working on the sequel right now, to the prequel, and so the excitement is – I’m not gonna tell you, but – are they gonna talk or not? Part of the challenge was how to get across what was happening between the apes without words. In the end I think it was a good challenge for us. It created better storytelling.

There’s not much there but at least they reveal the timeline of the next film. Fox somehow broke the mold of releasing sh*tty movies with two incredible summer movies, Rise and X-Men, can they keep the momentum? What do you want to see in a sequel?
