Well, well ,well. It certainly has been a while since we heard anything in regards to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Thankfully with the passing of time we have finally got word on some new casting news.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty) has signed on to star in 20th Century Fox’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
At this time it is unclear as to who Clarke will play in the upcoming sequel.
Unfortunately plot details are still undisclosed, but the film is said to be set 15 years since the first film and the focus could be on “the group of human scientists who are struggling to survive alone in San Francisco. Another aspect of the story is the struggle of intelligent ape Caesar.”
