After becoming a huge box office surprise at the end of the summer, Rise of the Planet of the Apes will definitely get a sequel. Deadline has confirmed the news, and that Andy Serkis will see a seven figure deal to return as Caesar. Director Rupert Wyatt will be back as well.
Even cooler, Deadline received confirmation that Fox will launch an Oscar campaign for Serkis. There’s no guarantee that he’ll even be nominated, but just the fact that Fox is listening to the demands that he be recognized puts some hope out there. He deserved it a decade ago for Gollum, maybe he’ll finally get it this time for Caesar.
