As the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes DVD is readying to arrive on the world, Andy Serkis is talking about the future of the series. In an interview with MTV, the actor admitted what should be music to the ears of fans. After the incredible first two movies, it seems kind of limiting that this series should ONLY be a trilogy. Someone else shares those thoughts as well.
“It’s very, very early in where we choose to drop anchor in the next film. It could be five years after the event. It could be the night after the events of where we left Dawn. It’s very difficult to know where the story is going right at this moment because it’s being written as we speak,” Serkis said.
“I know that part of the desire for Matt [Reeves, director] to do this next movie is about continuing the enjoyment of seeing these apes evolve.”
Then, he said the words that we welcome and could not agree more on. “It might be three films. It could be four. It could be five. Who knows? But the journey will continue,” Serkis said.
“It might not necessarily be summarized 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.”
