Planet of the Apes prequel Rise of the Planet of the Apes was a surprise hit, earning a surprising $481 million worldwide while becoming one of the most successful comic book movies of the summer. So it came as no surprise when 20th Century Fox decided to lock down actor Andy Serkis (who played the ape Caesar through motion-capture), co-producers and screenwriters Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa and director Rupert Wyatt for a sequel last month, and then admitted over two weeks ago that all a Rise sequel required was a "great script".
