    Andy Serkis seals 7-figure deal to return for Apes sequel | Blastr

    All hail Caesar ... and his fat wallet. Andy Serkis will be swinging back to cinema after signing a seven-figure deal to reprise his role from Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

    Serkis' incredible motion-capture performance was one of the reasons for its $453 million box-office haul, and 20th Century Fox has rewarded its simian star with more than just a few bananas.

    When Fox counted all its coins from Apes and a sequel was ordered, Serkis was the first key element locked in. Director Rupert Wyatt was already obligated to a second film per his contract, as were screenwriters Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver. Until a solid story is nailed down and a screenplay delivered, it's unclear whether James Franco's character will even return at all. (That might not be a bad thing.)

    Serkis has elevated motion-capture acting to a fine art since his stunning debut as Gollum in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. His deal in those movies included no options or concessions for further Tolkien-based projects, so he received a Smaug's fortune to return for both Hobbit films. Now that his scenes in The Hobbit are finished, Serkis has stayed on as Peter Jackson's second unit director.

    This dude is versatile!

    Recent howls have demanded a deserved Oscar bid for Serkis' intelligent, unsettling work in Rise of the Apes. Studio execs at Fox have heard the hollers and, before the contract ink was dry, confirmed that an Oscar campaign was mounting for Serkis' sensational Caesar.

    Yeah but Serkis is a genius. He just does stuff that other people can't in terms of emotion. A tip of the hat to the artists who make it work as well.

    Finally got around to watching this tonight. Good flick but for all the great mocap you can still see that the CGI is not quite there yet. Looking forward to a sequel in a few years...

    DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES Losing Director Rupert Wyatt? | Collider

    Although the release date is more than 18 months away, it looks like director Rupert Wyatt may be stepping away from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Wyatt directed the 2011 reboot/prequel, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and was expected to return for multiple sequels along with star Andy Serkis. Now, reports are coming out that Wyatt is exiting the production with the explanation that he doesn’t feel comfortable making the expected release date of May 23, 2014. Hit the jump for much more, including what this move means for the future of the sequel and for Wyatt’s career.

    Deadline reports that Wyatt may be exiting Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, but Fox has declined to comment. If Wyatt’s explanation is to be believed, his departure would be similar to that of director Gary Ross when he opted not to direct The Hunger Games: Catching Fire due to the studio’s time constraint, even after the first film’s phenomenal success. Wyatt was certainly a major component to the success of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, but much like Ross’s situation, we will have to wait until the sequel comes out before we can say whether the directors were integral to the quality of the films or if it was just a rabid fan base for both properties that drove up the box office numbers.

    Without Wyatt, Fox will be on the hunt for a director to step in quickly. The franchise is too important to waste any time and the studio is already reportedly satisfied with the script turned in by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver. The follow-up film should see the apes taking over the world and possibly talking, which the screenwriters talked about briefly.
    Oh no...this is bad. He had such a nice touch. Someone is gonna come in and just Burton the damned thing up.

    That doesn't sound good.
