Rupert Wyatt Out Of The Director's Chair For Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes?
Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes was a surprise smash hit and TMIAJ's 2011 Movie Of The Year. The sequel, titled Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, is due in theaters in 2014 and needless to say is highly anticipated. But could it now be looking for a new director? Deadline is reporting that 'Rise' director Rupert Wyatt may be exiting the picture for the same reason Gary Ross is not returning for The Hunger Games sequels. He apparently feels 20th Century Fox is rushing the film. Just under 2 years is rushing? Perhaps the script isn't up to par? Really we don't know and this is a rumor at the moment until confirmed by Fox or Wyatt himself.
