We might not have heard a lot about the next Planet Of The Apes film, but that’s because director Matt Reeves has been quietly working on the sequel War Of The Planet Of The Apes. Reeves is finally ready to start the casting process, with Deadline reporting that Gabriel Chavarria will play one of the leading roles.
The story for the new film is yet to be revealed but if you saw Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, you’ll know that after a conflict between the human survivors of the virus and Caesar’s simian forces, a sort of truce was reached, one that was threatened by the coming of human reinforcements from outside San Francisco.
We know that Chavarria will be playing one of the main human characters in the movie and Andy Serkis is surely likely to be returning to his key role. Shooting starts this October in Vancouver, so expect more casting announcements as the date approaches.
