CinemaCon: Rise of the Planet of the Apes Sequel a Go

Share

While we’re working on our write-up of the recently-completed 20th Century Fox presentation at CinameCon–including first footage from diverse movies such as the R-rated comedy Neighborhood Watch, the (presumably) PG comedy Parental Guidance, the upcoming action sequel Taken 2, and Ang Lee’s epic Life of Pi (you can read that here)–Fox Co-Chairman and Chief Creative Officer of Fox Filmed Entertainment Tom Rothman dropped a hint that we may be seeing a sequel to last year’s hit Rise of the Planet of the Apes very soon.

The sequel was mentioned as part of a list of movies Fox plans to start production on by summer’s end, which included The Wolverine, Steven Spielberg’s Robopocalypse and Shawn Levy’s comedy The Internship, starring Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson.

Since the first two of those are already set for summer 2013 release dates, is there a chance that 20th Century Fox might be pushing for a Rise of the Planet of the Apes sequel to be a third? Or maybe they’ll save that one for the fall or holiday slate, which is still fairly open.

As far as we know, they still haven’t confirmed that director Rupert Wyatt would be returning and we assumed that Andy Serkis may be busy doing second unit on Peter Jackson’s two-part The Hobbit, although he has already signed for the sequel, so could they both make time this fall to start shooting this sequel?

These are questions we’ll hopefully have answers to very soon.

Look for the rest of our write-up on the Fox presentation later today.
