Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes “Set 15 Years After,” Features Jason Clarke Of Zero Dark Thirty

Jason Clarke, who was pretty much off-radar until Zero Dark Thirty, has been cast in Matt ReevesDawn of the Planet of the Apes.

The Hollywood Reporter broke news of Clarke’s deal but don’t know who he’ll be playing. I assume it’s a human, though he may yet turn out to be an orangutang, chimp or gibbon. Perhaps. Not likely.

There’s not a lot of news on what the film will actually be about, though it’s set some fifteen years after Rise – the Apes like to Rise before Dawn, apparently. Caesar is to feature heavily again, as he fights to maintain control of his Monkey Rome, and there’s also said to be a:

group of human scientists who are struggling to survive alone in San Francisco.

What will the ape revolution look like fifteen years down the road? In fact, the big question might be what will it sound like? My guess is that these apes are going to speak.

I’ll also take the bet that there’s one called Brutus.

Production is set to start in the spring.
