DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES Writer On What We Will Won't See In The Movie

One of the film's writers/producers Rick Jaffa chats to Total Film about the upcoming sequel to the very popular ROTPOTA. He doesn't reveal any plot specifics, but does tell us what we most likely WON'T be seeing..

Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes was something of a surprise to many people - emerging as a firm fan-favorite around these parts especially - so there is quite a bit of anticipation for the follow up. But what can we expect to see from Caesar and his hairy pals? As any fan of the original series of films will know, time travel plays a very big part, so should we expect to see this explored in Dawn? Total Film asks one half of the movie's writing/production team what elements from the original Apes saga will inform the sequel, and while Jaffa remains tight lipped on plot details, he does address the above issue..

"I don't foresee that. But it's interesting you should ask that, because it's the one big element that we made a conscious decision not to explore in the first one, and we were worried that there might be some backlash in the science fiction community because of it. When the story first came together we were very, very excited, and yet before we pitched it, I thought, 'The one thing missing though is time travel. But it's not necessary for this particular telling'. And I don't really foresee it, to tell you the truth."

So it seems that while this sequel might take a few nods from the movies Rise had most in common with such as Conquest Of The Planet Of The Apes, and Battle For The Planet Of The Apes, it doesn't sound likely that we will build up to or lead directly into the events of the first Planet Of The Apes - at least not in a time-hopping Charlton Heston kinda way. Any fans of the originals annoyed by this, or do you think it's the right way to go about it?

Rupert Wyatt will return to direct Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, which will be released May 23rd, 2014.
