No surprises here! There was talk of an Apes sequel less than a week after Rise came out!!!!
After kicking some serious butt at the box office with the first one, Fox is ready to move forward with their Rise of the Planet of the Apes sequel, and they've brought back Rise screenwriters Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver to write the script!
Here's what the writers had to say about the next Apes movie:
"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."
Very exciting! We LOVED Rise, and we're sure the next one is going to be fantastic AND intense!!!!
What do U think? Are U pumped for more Apes???

Fox CEO Tom Rothman is asking the Academy to consider Serkis who he feels was snubbed for his work on the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Serkis is famous for his motion capture roles.
Having played Gollum in LOTR, Serkis played Caesar, the main chimp in the Apes flick.
Rothman said the following about Serkis's push:

The hottie was in town to make an appearance on the Today show where she talked about her role in the new film Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Overall, a great look.
