Rupert Wyatt Already Talking About an Apes Sequel

It's never too early to start thinking about your next $54 million opening! Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt told Bleeding Cool that he already has an idea for Part II: "Full Metal Jacket with apes." What would that entail, exactly?


"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.”

He didn't say anything about Caesar and the gang using their newly acquired powers of speech to do "The Mickey Mouse March," but here's hoping. [Bleeding Cool via Movieline]
