Andy Serkis Discusses DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES
Andy Serkis, who will reprise his role as Caesar the Ape in the 2014 sequel Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, talks about the highly anticipated follow-up and teases how his character will operate in the world.
Speaking with Coming Soon while promoting The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, actor Andy Serkis offers a small update on 20th Century Fox's Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, the highly anticipated sequel to last year's Rise which will be directed by Matt Reeves (Let Me In). While he doesn't give away a lot of new details, he does confirm that he has met with Reeves, and that filming will begin towards the end of the first quarter of 2013 (it was previously reported that the movie will start production in March). Additionally, Serkis' own motion-capture studio, The Imaginarium, has done pre-testing for Apes. However, their first major project that will be directed by Serkis is an adaptation of George Orwell's Animal Farm. You can see what Serkis says about that by clicking the source link below. Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes is set to hit theaters March 23rd, 2014, and you can check out Serkis as Gollum in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on December 14th.
"The interesting thing now will be how Caesar operates in this world - because of the virus that hits at the end of the first movie - and how Caesar brings an accord between the apes and the surviving humans and that's going to be interesting where we take that."
