And now for your latest bit of casting news, courtesy of the folks here at Nerd Bastards. This time around, it’s the new Apes film, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and the new face on the casting list is Keri Russell.
Russell looks like she’s snagged up the female lead in the flick, though details beyond that are as of yet unknown. She will be joining up with Andy Serkis, Gary Oldman, Jason Clarke, Kodi Smit-McPhee and whoever else happens to get hired in the coming weeks.
The new story, in case you don’t know, takes place 15 years after the last one and the apes are in charge now. But the humans are still resisting, of course, else there wouldn’t be much of a story.
Check out Dawn of the Planet of the Apes when it shows up in theaters on May 23rd, 2014.
Thanks to ComingSoon for the heads-up.
