It looks like the third apes movie has found its first human star…

Rise of the Planet of the Apes was the first of the new Planet of the Apes films; set in modern times, it considered what would happen if Apes were made as smart, or smarter, than humans. The second, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, focused on a more post apocalyptic approach, a story which I personally didn’t like as much and was the beginning of a divide between humans and apes.

Well the third, War of the Planet of the Apes, seems to be an all out war film. However, the key points of the plot are not yet known.

Casting is now underway with Gabriel Chavarria, star of Universal’s upcoming Lowriders, the first actor cast.

Cloverfield‘s Matt Reeves returns to direct with the pic shooting for an October start date in Vancouver.

War of the Planet of the Apes is set for a UK release on 21st July 2017

My name is Jonathan Snelling. I’ve been a movie fan for a long time now and last year completed a degree in Film and Television Studies at Aberystwyth University. It’s hard to choose a favourite film but I’ve always been a major fan of Christopher Nolan’s Batman saga. I’m really interested to see how Ben Affleck does in Dawn of Justice as it's set to be an incredible film. I’m usually willing to see any genre but naturally some more so than others.
