rise of the planet of the apesLooks like Fox really wants to get things moving on the Rise of the Planet of the Apes sequel.

Deadline reports that Fox has optioned director Ruper Wyatt to begin work on Apes "2," so much so that Wyatt had to bow out of directing Warner Bros.'s Londongrad, in which X-Men First Class star Michael Fassbender was targeted to play the lead.

In its opening weekend, Rise of the Planet of the Apes brought in an estimated $54 million, grossing over $175 million overall.

No wonder Fox wants to get what has become a fan-favorite movie out so soon.
