Scott Z Burns is attached to write the script for the sequel to last year’s blockbuster hit Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which was both critically acclaimed as well as a hit at the box office. Burns has penned many scripts, including Contagion, The Bourne Ultimatum, and The Informant. Burns is now in the talks with Fox to write the script, but original writers from the first film in the reboot series, Amanda Silver and Rich Jaffa, are returning to write a draft of the sequel.
Also returning for the sequel is director Rupert Wyatt. Actor Andy Serkis, who played Caesar, is also returning for the sequel. There is yet no details on what the film is going to be about or how far in the future the film is going to go as far as when the apes take over the planet; there is also no release date as of now.
