Sure! Why not! Hell, this one outperformed what the studio had planned for it. When a movie rakes in that kind of $$$, you must pay heed!
Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt has expressed interest in making a sequel to his prequel of the Planet of the Apes. The movie would still fall in the timeline before the original movie takes place and he is calling his idea "Full Metal Jacket with apes." He adds:
"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.”
But we wonder: how long can this go on for before they're just making another remake of the original?
We all know how well that turned out for Tim Burton!
