The cast list for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is starting to swell its ranks, with the most recent addition being young actor Kodi Smit-McPhee. Most recently, Zero Dark Thirty star Jason Clarke was added as one of the leads. Smit-McPhee (who previously starred in Let Me In, opposite Chloe Moretz)’s role is not yet clear at the moment, but he is said to be cast in one of the lead roles.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes will pick up 15 years after the events of the last film, with humanity whittled down due to the ape-borne flu, while the apes themselves have flourished. Chief ape Caesar, on the other hand, is having problems maintaining control of the revolution that he started.
Directed by Matt Reeves and co-starring the returning Andy Serkis as Caesar, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes will open in the UK on 23 May 2014.
