We're still a few years away from seeing the Rise of the Planet of the Apes sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, slated for release in the summer of 2014. Earlier today, an intriguing photo appeared on the original movie's Facebook page that implies these apes will be carrying guns in the sequel. Take a look at the photo, then read on for more details on this highly-anticipated follow-up.
We reported last month that Let Me In director Matt Reeves signed on to take over for Rupert Wyatt, who backed out due to scheduling issues. A few weeks later, we also reported that Mark Bomback signed on to rewrite the original script by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver.
