Even before Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was a rousing box office success and garnered Oscar talk for Andy Serkis, though his performance is all motion capture, we already knew that we were going another installment in the revamped franchise. Planet of the Apes 3 is already scheduled for release on July 29, 2016, and we couldn’t be more pumped. But that may not be all we have to look forward to.
While many expected the third film to be the close of a trilogy, it’s looking like there may be much more in store. Talking to MTV, Serkis had a lot to say about the next chapter in the Apes saga. He started off talking about the as yet untitled next installment, and what it might look like. For those expecting to a significant jump forward in time, it doesn’t look like we’re going to see a world completely dominated by intelligent apes just yet.
