CinemaCon: RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES Sequel A Go
It appears that 20th Century Fox is looking to begin production on the sequel to last year's Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes by the end of the summer, potentially for a 2013 release.
Today, 20th Century Fox held their CinemaCon 2012 panel. Amidst debuting new footage from Taken 2 and Neighborhood Watch, Fox Co-Chairman/Chief Creative Officer of Fox Filmed Entertainment Tom Rothman hinted that we may be soon see a sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, a reboot of the popular franchise released last year to critical acclaim. A list of movies that the studio is planning on beginning production on this year has been revealed. One of those movies mentioned were the Apessequel. Also on the list were The Wolverine and Robocalypse.
Coming Soon speculates that Fox may schedule the sequel as its third summer 2013 movie, or the more open fall/winter slate. Additionally, the studio hasn't confirmed that director Rupert Wyatt will be returning (despite his postponing work on Londongrad in case Fox decides to fast track Apes 2), and star Andy Serkis may be busy working on The Hobbit this fall (although he has signed on for the sequel).
