I'm saddened to hear that Rupert Wyatt is off the sequel, he did a superb job on Rise and he will be a tough act to follow. The ape revolution is essentially a hairier version of the zombie apocalypse so any director that did a good zombie movie would be a good choice. Matt Reeves is on a bit of a roll with Cloverfield and then Let Me In - both creature features. He would be the frontrunner for me at the moment.

Surely Andy Serkis should direct it.

He's going to be on set anyway and now has some experience of directing a big special effects movie.

What about Ridley Scott?? He would make a classic Ape movie.

I agree with tolkienerd - Andy Serkis would be good.

As with all films it should be Verhoven or Cronenberg!

Only trouble wih those two is they'd never get the certificate rating that the studio wants.

Neil Blomkamp would be a good fit for this I think, but I don't know how his schedule looks, should be in post on Elysium.
