2014's biggest sequel is handed its first plot details!
20th Century Fox have today released the initial narrative brief for the follow-up to 2011's hit action thriller Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes. Titled Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (yep, it's no less of a mouthful!), the sequel is confirmed to once again star Andy Serkis as intelligent ape leader Caesar with Matt Reeves directing the project.
Here's the synopsis as it currently stands: "Dawn continues the story of how ultra-intelligent simian Caesar presides over the fall of human civilization. After the apes break out of their facility, a virus break-out causes the collapse of human society. The new project is taking the story to the next level, with the apes on the path to emerge as society's new rulers."
There's no mention of James Franco here, but no doubt we'll have more star talent to replace the accomplished actor if he can't make it this time around. Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes will hit cinemas on May 23rd, 2014.
