Gary Oldman joins Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes
Matt Reeves' Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes adds Gary Oldman to its cast list...
Slowly but surely, the cast is coming together for Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes follow-up, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes. There aren't too many returning from the last film, given that some time will have passed in narrative terms by the time we get to Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes. That said, Andy Serkis is returning to lend his motion capture brilliance to the role of Caesar.
New additions to the cast? Well, we already knew that Jason Clarke and Kodi Smit-McPhee were taking on sizeable roles in the new movie. And now, Coming Soon reports that Gary Oldman is set to sign on the dotted line, to play the leader of a human colony in the new film. We don't know much more than that at the moment, but Oldman's addition is clearly a good one. He's in the RoboCop reboot too of course, which is set to land a month or two before Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes.
Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes is set to start production shortly, under the eye of director Matt Reeves. It's earmarked for release on May 23rd 2014.
