“It might be three films. It could be four. It could be five. Who knows? The journey will continue. It might not necessarily be summarized or completely fulfilled in this next one. The point being, eventually we know that we’re going to end up back at ‘The Planet of the Apes’, but whether it’s this film or not, I don’t know,” Serkis said.
“To be honest, it’s very, very early in where we choose to drop our anchor in the next film, so it could be five years after the event. It could be the night after the events of where we left ‘Dawn’, so it’s very difficult to know where the story is going right at this moment because it’s being written as we speak. I know part of the desire for Matt Reeves to do this next movie about continuing the enjoyment of seeing these apes evolve,” he added.
The third movie is planned for July 29, 2016 release Stateside. Matt Reeves from the second installment ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ returns to direct it.
