Planet of the Apes franchise may go beyond a third movie, according to Andy Serkis
With the success of the first two movies in the Planet of the Apes franchise, it may come as no surprise that the franchise may go beyond the planned third movie, thats according to star Andy Serkis.
With the success of the second movie this past summer and the announcement of a third almost immediately after its release, director Matt Reeves is already hard at work planning the third film, and according to Andy Serkis there could be even more films beyond that.
"It might be three films. It could be four. It could be five. Who knows?" says Serkis. "The journey will continue. It might not necessarily be summarised or completely fulfilled in this next one. The point being, eventually we know that we’re going to end up back at The Planet of the Apes, but whether it’s this film or not, I don’t know."
As of now, Serkis doesn't even know how the next movie will start;
"To be honest, it’s very, very early in where we choose to drop our anchor in the next film, so it could be five years after the event. It could be the night after the events of where we left Dawn, so it’s very difficult to know where the story is going right at this moment because it’s being written as we speak. I know part of the desire for Matt to do this next movie about continuing the enjoyment of seeing these apes evolve."
