Jocko Sims (pictured; Crash, White Space, Something Is Killing Tate) has joined the cast of Fox’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, opposite Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Kodi-Smit McPhee and Gary Oldman, Variety reports.
Fox has set the film for release on May 23, 2014. Matt Reeves replaced Rupert Wyatt, who had directed 2011’s franchise reboot Rise of the Planet of the Apes, in October.
Produced by Chernin Entertainment, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is set in an apocalyptic future more than a decade after Rise of the Planet of the Apes, in which the ape population far exceeds humans. Script is penned by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver.
Sims will portray the supporting role of military operative Werner.
