Gary Oldman Cast In DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES
After hanging up Jim Gordon's mustache in The Dark Knight Rises this summer, Gary Oldman is now on board Fox's anticipated sequel Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes. Hit the jump for details on his role and more.
The cast of 20th Century Fox's Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes just became more impressive. After Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Let Me In) were recently cast in the Matt Reeves-directed sequel to 2011's Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, Coming Soon reports that none other than Gary Oldman has been brought on board. The Dark Knight Rises star will be playing Dreyfuss, "the leader of a human colony" after the apes' takeover. The movie takes place 15 years after Rise, with one focus set on a small group of surviving scientists in San Francisco and the other on the ape civilization of Caesar (Andy Serkis). Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes is set to hit theaters May 23rd, 2014. Oldman will also soon be seen in the RoboCop reboot, which opens February 7th. What do you think of this casting news?
