Jason Clarke, a breakout actor thanks to his astounding performance as a CIA agent in Zero Dark Thirty, has signed on to star in 20th Century Fox’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, says The Hollywood Reporter.
The film will be directed by Cloverfield‘s Matt Reeves, as previously reported. Much of the plot is being kept under lock and key but it is set 15 years after the events of 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which starred James Franco. 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.
Peter Chernin, Dylan Clarke, Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa are producing the movie, which is currently working off a script by Mark Bomback. Apes is targeting a spring shoot for release on May 23, 2014.
