Apes sequel gets its Cornelia

March 29th, 2013 by Marc Comments

Actress Judy Greer, best known for her role as Kitty on ‘Arrested Development’, has told Variety that she will play Cornelia in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

The sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, ‘Dawn’ will be directed by Matt Reeves with Andy Serkis returning as Caesar.

“It’s a very different kind of work than I’m used to,” Greer told the outlet. “I’m not going to be wearing Manolo Blahniks in this one,”. According to the story, Greer met with Reeves for the role of Cornelia after being encouraged by her 13 Going on 30 co-star (and “Rise” star) Andy Serkis.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is scheduled for release on May 23, 2014.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
