Andy Serkis recruited for Apes sequel

Andy Serkis has signed on to reprise the role of Caesar, the super-intelligent and rebellion-loving chimpanzee, in Rupert Wyatt’s sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

According to Deadline, Serkis has secured a seven-figure deal to appear in the flick. He had originally only signed on for one film, so he was able to leverage the box office (and critical!) success of ROTPOTA into a nice payday.

Fox also confirmed to Deadline that they will be waging a campaign for Serkis to receive an Oscar nomination for his lauded motion-capture performance.

It is unknown if James Franco will be recruited to return for ROTPOTA 2.

Discuss: Looking forward to seeing the continuation of this tale?
