ROBOCOP Star Gary Oldman Reveals New DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES Plot Details

The Dark Knight Trilogy's Gary Oldman stars in RoboCop and has talked to LucasFilm about a role in Star Wars Episode VII, but his next franchise will be Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. After the jump, he reveals details about the plot and his character...



In an interview with MTV News, Gary Oldman revealed that he plays "the designated leader" of a community of humans in Matt Reeves' Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, all of whom "were lucky enough to survive the flu, the disease and ensuing social uprising." As a former police office, Oldman's character has been elected into a position of power and when he leads his fellow humans to a nearby power station to see if it's still operational, they "discover that there's a whole community of apes living there. We believed that they were all completely fire-bottomed and wiped out. There's only one answer for him: Wipe them out." To find out more about his character and the tone of the sequel, be sure to check out the interview above.
