English actor Andy Serkis who wowed audiences as the human alter ego of Caesar in last summer’s “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” has signed on for a sequel, The Wrap reports.
Rupert Wyatt will direct, the website reported.
Here’s the nut graf:
“Director Rupert Wyatt also is on board, along with writer-producers Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver.
Jaffa and Silver told TheWrap in August that from the time they wrote “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” they knew what they wanted to put in a sequel. And, for that matter, in a third movie.”
