ComingSoon Oldman has been cast as the leader of a human colony in the film. In case you missed the previous news, the new movie is set 15 years after the first one and sees the human race struggling against the apes.
"One focus is 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, played by a returning Andy Serkis,
to maintain dominance over his kingdom."
Deadline are reporting that Oldman will play a character called Dreyfus, who leads the human resistance after the apes have taken power. Gary Oldman will be joined by Kodi Smith-McPhee ("Let Me In"), Jason Clarke ("Brotherhood") and Andy Serkis. Production will begin this Spring, and Matt Reeves ("Cloverfield") will Direct.
