We’re that much closer to a sequel to last year’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes, as Scott Z. Burns (Contagion, The Bourne Ultimatum) has been tapped to pen a sequel.

Reports Heat Vision:

The new project is taking the story to the next level, with the apes on the path to emerge as society’s new rulers.

A previous draft of the film was penned by Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa, who also wrote the first film. Andy Serkis is set to return as Caesar, with director Rupert Wyatt also attached.

Are you excited to hear Burns is taking a crack at the script?

      …What about him? He’s not going to be in it.

       He’s kind of (Spoiler Alert!) a little bit dead, so I doubt he’ll be in the sequel.

    I never even saw last years film!!  Only reason I even want to watch it is because of Tom Felton.  Other than that, I could care less.

    The first one was actually a really good movie. I was pleasantly surprised. Watch it! Really good.
