Gary Oldman Joins the Cast of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Gary Oldman

DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES has cast the awesome Gary Oldman who is joining the already stellar line-up. In addition to Oldman, you will see a returning Andy Serkis, recent reports name Jason Clarke and Kodi Smit-McPhee as two of the sequel’s principal cast. According to, Oldman’s character “will be boarding the project as the leader of a human colony”. I don’t know about you guys, but I can get on board with that!

Set 15 years after the events of RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, Dawn finds most of humanity wiped out and the intelligent apes ruling over the world. Part of the film’s focus is said to be on a small group of San Francisco-based scientists that are forming a resistance against the apes and part follows Serkis’ Caesar as he, like his namesake, tries to maintain order and power within his new civilization.
