Apes sequel gets Contagion writer

May 16th, 2012 by bash Comments

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.

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 also set to return.

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”.

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

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
