dawn of the planet of the apes andy serkisGet ready for a lot more apes.

In a revealing interview with Collider, actor Andy Serkis reveals that the beginning to this summer’s “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” (the sequel to 2011’s “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”) is all apes, all the time — and that we should brace ourselves for a third movie.

“The idea would be that this will segue into a third movie, which will lead us back to the origins, which leads us back to the very, very first movie,” he says, referencing the 1968 classic.

“Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” is very different from its predecessor, which began with a bucolic family setting. This film will focus more on the tribe that Caesar (Serkis) leads.

“We start 10 years later. We start with all intents and purposes we think most of humanity’s been wiped out,” he notes. “The first 20 minutes of the movie, you think you’re watching just apes. You forget human beings.”

Serkis also talks about moving more into directing than acting, as he works on an adaptation of “The Jungle Book.” Watch the interview for more scoop!
