Rise of the Planet of the Apes was the first movie in a new prequel trilogy set before the events of 1968's Planet of the Apes, starring Charlton Heston.

Its sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is to be the second movie in the trilogy, set fifteen years after the events of "Rise", telling of a group of human survivors struggling to survive alone in San francisco, while Caeser, portrayed by Andy Serkis, struggles to maintain control and dominance over the growing Ape society he has sired.

Gary Oldman has joined the cast of "Dawn".

Last week saw the news that "Dawn", to be directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Let Me In) will feature Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty) and Kodi Smit-McPhee.

This week brings the news that Jason Clarke has been cast as a military leader of the human survivors, whom will star alongside new addition to the cast Gary Oldman (Dark Knight Trilogy, RoboCop 2014), whom will be playing an intellectual, diplomatic leader of the humans.

This news is promising, not only for Gary Oldman's involvement, but the mirroring dynamics of unrest in both the ape and human sides of the story, along with guaranteed confrontation between the both sides, should ensure interesting performances from its key actors.

"Dawn" will be released 23rd May 2014.


Thanks to the Hollywood Reporter for the news
