While director Rupert Wyatt has been talking up all sorts of ideas of where a “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” sequel can go, it seems screenwriters Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver already have plans of where they intend to take Caesar.
Silver tells EW “We definitely have ideas for where the sequel – plural, where the sequels – would take us, and those were kind of built into [the narrative]… When we started this, we knew that this movie would stand on its own, and we designed it that way. But if it didn’t stand on its own, we pictured a trilogy that would start with this movie.”
Jaffa adds “There hasn’t been an official discussion yet about a sequel, because I think everyone still doesn’t want to jinx where we are. But we definitely have ideas.”
