20th Century Fox’s War of the Planet of the Apes is swinging right along into it’s third installment; this one featuring Woody Harrelson as the human villain known as “the Colonel”.
This film will continue the story of Caesar the ape, who you could almost say is “played” by Andy Serkis. Serkis does all the movements and facial expressions for Caesar, which are later brought to life through his motion capture work.
It’s Harrelson we’re here to talk about though, and with good reason. Since his role in The Hunger Games franchise, and his stint on HBO’s first season of True Detective, Harrelson has had quite the popularity surge.
The film will be directed by Matt Reeves (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), produced by Chermin Entertainment, and have screen writing done by Mark Bomback (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes).
War of the Planet of the Apes is set to hit theaters July 14, 2017.
