For a movie about a bunch of hairy apes, 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' sure is building a terrific ensemble of human beings. Keri Russell is the latest name to join the cast, giving us further hope that the human side of this story will be as compelling as that of Caesar and his simian army.
'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,' and the new approach to the 'PotA' films is decidedly different than the tact taken in the 1970's. There, each sequel was given a smaller and smaller budget and with fewer name talents. Not so with 'Dawn,' as it just added Gary Oldman to the cast.
Viva la revolution! The apes are still rising, in case you were wondering, and the folks behind 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,' the sequel to 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes,' have released a new teaser image to pique your interest.
There's been some serious momentum on 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,' the sequel to last year's surprise hit 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes.' First, we learned that 'Cloverfield' director Matt Reeves will helm the sequel, and now the film's script will get a rewrite, courtesy of 'Wolverine' writer Mark Bomback.
It seemed that after 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,' the sequel to the James Franco-starring 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes,' set a release date for May 23, 2014, the entire production fell into a short bit of chaos. Rupert Wyatt, who was originally pegged to direct the film, gave up the gig presumably in favor of 'Agent 13,' starring Charlize Theron. Thankfully, 20th Century Fox built up a shortlist of directors, and they've finally selected 'Cloverfield' helmer Matt Reeves to step in.
We recently reported that director Rupert Wyatt had stepped away from 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,' his follow up to the successful 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes.' Now a director's short-list has for his replacement been revealed, and it's fascinating.
Thought 20th Century Fox has already announced a release date for 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' (May 23, 2014), they haven't shot a frame of the film, and that release date may now be in jeopardy if the rumors are true and director Rupert Wyatt has left the film.
