Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes 2 Confirmed

Okay, so maybe the title will be a little less long-winded.
20th Century Fox revealed at CinemaCon this week that a sequel to last year's hit fantasy epic Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes is entering production this Summer. The first film focused on young intelligent ape Caesar's rise from friendly human companion to the leader of a national rebellion of primates against their captors and enslavers, and turned out to be one of the major surprise successes of 2011's Summer Of Film. There's been no definitive news yet on the plot of the next instalment, but we can probably at least expect a return from Andy Serkis to the role of Caesar and more of an emphasis on the disease that was starting to spread across humanity in the post-credits scenes, thus leading towards the inevitable downfall of our race and building towards the continuity of the original Apes films. Whether James Franco will return is another prospect entirely, yet I would doubt it based on how his character arc was left in Rise. 'Planet Of The Apes 2' (no official name has been given yet) will premiere in 2013.
