Time travel not a factor in DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES says writer

I don’t foresee that,” he tells Total Film (via Comic Book Movie.) “But it’s interesting you should ask that because it’s the one big element that we made a conscious decision not to explore in the first one, and we were worried that there might be some backlash in the science fiction community because of it. When the story first came together, we were very, very excited, and yet, before we pitched it, I thought, ‘The one thing missing, though, is time travel.

Amanda Silver, Rick Jaffa, Scott Burns penned the screenplay that “continues the story set forth in last year’s critical and commercial hit movie featuring simians that are given human intelligence and subsequently break out of their facility.
