Contagion Writer Penning Rise of the Planet of the Apes Sequel

Source: ComingSoon

May 15, 2012

Heat Vision is reporting that Twentieth Century Fox has hired Contagion writer Scott Z. Burns to pen the sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which earned $481.8 million worldwide last year on a budget of $93 million.

The site says the follow-up "is taking the story to the next level, with the apes on the path to emerge as society’s new rulers."

The original film's writers, Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa, were previously brought on board to write a draft of the sequel. Director Rupert Wyatt and Andy Serkis, who did the performance capture for Caesar, are set to return.

Burns' other credits include The Informant! and The Bourne Ultimatum.

I saw this coming! There's two great loose ends in the movie. One is the shuttle which goes missing near a black hole, same story from the original and 2) is the viral infection which they don't elaborate on. In the originals a virus mutated that killed off cats and dogs and thus mankind used apes as pets and then servants.

This movie can be awesome!

James Franco Not in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes?

Source: ComingSoon

December 17, 2012

Twentieth Century Fox Film is moving forward with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes for a May 23, 2014 release, but Rise of the Planet of the Apes star James Franco tells MTVthat he hasn't heard anything lately from the production.

"I was going to be a small part of the next one," he said. "There was a moment when Rupert Wyatt was going to direct the second one. A lot of the human characters that were in the first movie were dead in the sequel that Rupert was going to direct. But there was one scene, between Caesar and my character, maybe even just like on a video that was left behind, but then a lot of things happened, like [former Fox co-chairman] Tom Rothman who was a big part of the first movie, left. Now Rupert's not a part of it so I don't know. My guess is I won't be in it. Nobody's talked to me since Rupert left."

Cloverfield and Let Me In helmer Matt Reeves is now directing Dawn of the Planet of the Apes for the studio. The first film, released in 2011, earned $481.8 million at the worldwide box office.

Hope this holds up and he's not in it. I'm sorry, I just think he's a terrible actor.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Begins Principal Photography

by SuperHeroHype

May 08, 2013

Twentieth Century Fox announced today that principal photography is underway in New Orleans for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth's dominant species.

Andy Serkis, celebrated for his performance in the last film, reprises his role as Caesar. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes also stars Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty, Public Enemies, The Great Gatsby), Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises, the "Harry Potter" films), Keri Russell ("The Americans," Mission: Impossible III), Toby Kebbell (The Prince of Persia, Wrath of the Titans, Rock N Rolla), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me In, ParaNorman), Enrique Murciano (Traffic, Black Hawk Down), Kirk Acevedo (The Thin Red Line) and Judy Greer (The Descendants, Three Kings,13 Going on 30).

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Let Me In). The producers are Peter Chernin, Dylan Clark (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Oblivion), Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes). Tom Hammel (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) is executive producing.

Oscar-winning visual effects house WETA Digital - employing a new generation of the cutting edge performance capture technologies developed for Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Avatar - will again render photo-realistic, emotionally-engaging apes. The film's key behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Michael Seresin, production designer James Chinland, and VFX Supervisors Joe Letteri and Dan Lemmon, VFX producers Ryan Stafford, editor Bill Hoy and Stan Salfas, and costume designer Melissa Brunning.

Twentieth Century Fox will release Dawn of the Planet of the Apes worldwide on Memorial Day weekend, May 23, 2014. Rise of the Planet of the Apes opened theatrically during the summer of 2011, grossed nearly half a billion dollars worldwide.

Exclusive Photos From the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Set

by SuperHeroHype

May 25, 2013

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is currently filming in New Orleans and is only a year away from its release. Previously the only image we've seen from the sequel is of Andy Serkis as Caesar on a horse confronting a group of human survivors. Now, one of our sources found where the production has set up an overgrown San Francicso and snapped some pretty great photos, which you can see in our gallery by clicking here!

With the film being set 15 years after its predecessor, vines and huge stalks of grass have been brought in to make the big city look like a jungle. You'll also be able to see in many of the photos that false fronts have been brought in for many of the buildings to give them an aged and unkempt appearance. In addition, you can see a few San Francisco indicators, such as the lighthouse, the broken down bus with a billboard on top of it, and one building with a sign that reads "Federal Reserve of San Francisco." Check out one of the images of the jungle below.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes will open on May 23, 2014.

More Set Photos From Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

by SuperHeroHype

May 26, 2013

This weekend, we brought you some exclusive photos from the set of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Production is currently in New Orleans where they've set up an overgrown San Francisco on one of the streets. One of our sources got us quite a few photos previously and today they've provided us with a few more, including some surprises.

If you look at the pictures closely, you'll see a few more San Francisco indicators such as a banner for the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco and a broken down cable car. The most interesting thing about the photos though is the graffiti on one of the buildings. The original image is that of a human face with the words "Human Nation" on the top and bottom, and as you can see a chimpanzee skull (with a biohazard symbol) have been painted over it. Could this provide some clues about the human resistance still alive in the film? Sound off below with your theories and check out our full gallery of images by clicking here!

Directed by Matt Reeves with a script from Scott Z. Burns, Amanda Silver, Rick Jaffa and Mark Bomback, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes continues the story that began in 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes and features a cast that includes Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Enrique Murciano, Kirk Acevedo, Jocko Sims, and Judy Greer.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Moves Up One Week

by SuperHeroHype

December 10, 2013

The tragic death of Paul Walker has left a lot of questions up in the air, most notably the impact it would have on the already in-production Fast & Furious 7, which had director James Wan scrambling to try to make the planned July 11, 2014 release date. With production halted for an indeterminate time, it raised even more questions about whether that date was feasible, something Universal Pictures has remained quiet about.

At least one studio isn't taking any chances of missing out on a plum post-Independence Day weekend in July, so 20th Century Fox moved their own sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, directed by Matt Reeves, forward one week to the July 11 release date previously earmarked for Fast & Furious 7. (Having seen what Fast & Furious 6 did to The Hangover: Part 3 this past Memorial Day, few studios were willing to take the racing behemoth on.)

Of course, that still doesn't mean that Universal Pictures has given up on trying to make that July 2014 date and until they make some sort of statement or officially confirm it, the weekend of July 11 will be a head-to-head battle.

This also leaves July 18 rather vacant with only Disney's animated sequel Planes: Fire & Rescue on that date so far.
