Writers Talk Rise of the Planet of the Apes Sequel
With the success of Rise of the Planet of the Apes (Blu-ray / DVD review here), talk of a sequel began almost instantly. By the time the film ended, we had learned how the human race would fade away, leaving the door open for this new rule, and from the sound of things the sequel will pick up right there.
Writers Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver recently sat down with The Q&A with Jeff Goldsmith to talk about what to expect from the next film and dropped the following on curious fans.
"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."
Words alone cannot describe how infinitely psyched we are for the sequel. It just can't get here soon enough. What do you want to see in it? Tell us in the comments section below.
