Directed by Matt Reeves, the film starring Andy Serkis and Woody Harrelson, follows the events of 2014’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which saw peace between mankind and apekind broken permanently and a final war looming. Caesar (Serkis) and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel (Harrelson) that will determine the fate of both their species and the future of the planet.
Reeves also co-wrote the script with Mark Bomback. Peter Chernin, Dylan Clark, Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver produce. Cast also includes Steve Zahn, Amiah Miller, Karin Konoval & Terry Notary.
The new Apes follows the initial 2011 Rise of the Planet of the Apes reboot of the 1960/1970s franchise and its Dawn of the Planet of the Apes sequel. Reeves also directed the Dawn film and Clark was also a producer on that film as he was on the 2011 Rupert Wyatt helmed pic.
