The sequel will take place 15 years after Rise. Jason Clarke (Lawless) has been added to the cast.

2 main story arcs will be:

One focus is on the group of human scientists who are struggling to survive alone in San Francisco. Another aspect of the story is the struggle of intelligent ape Caesar, played by a returning Andy Serkis, to maintain dominance over his kingdom.

Oh, shit. 15 years after?!

Also somehow I missed that Franco isn't in this. Doesn't matter. I'm pretty gung ho to see how this reboot keeps going. Serkis, man. The motherfucker can act like a motherfucking badass.

While I guess a story with humans is somewhat necessary, I would be fine with having this saga done almost entirely from the apes POV with the humans as a subplot.

I wonder if the change in director is because the other guy wanted to start the sequel right after the first one.

I'm okay with the jump, though I'm sure the studio will love the opportunity to fill in that gap with comics and videogames.

The speculative synopsis claims that Caesar is the intelligent ape, but I thought the devices he used in the first one made all of his fellow escapees intelligent as well. When it says something about a power struggle I am almost certain it will be with Kobol.

Wait. So Battlestar Galactica is somehow involved?

I haven't seen the movie in a while, but I do recall Caesar giving all the apes the intelligence formula, so they'd probably all speak. If the movie follows the books, there will probably be class divisions between the Gorillas, Orangs and Chimps.

Cool to see this "jackwagon" get more work. Loved him in 'The Chicago Code'.

He probably has the best "I'm fucking stressed and/or tired" look ever. Lawless and ZDT displayed that very well.

I might have the name wrong. It's the chimp who was in the lab that had an unpleasant demeanor and was also taking the drug. At the end of the first one he

EXCLUSIVE: Gary Oldman is joining Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, the Matt Reeves-directed sequel to Fox‘s successful ape reboot Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes. William Clarke and Kodi-Smit McPhee have already been set. I’m told that Oldman will play Dreyfus, leader of the human resistance after the apes have taken power. Fox has set the film for release on May 23, 2014. Oldman most recently starred in Lawless and The Dark Knight Rises, and will next be seen in the Robocop remake for MGM. He’s repped by Douglas Management Group and APA.

I looked up Kodi-Smit McPhee. He was the kid in "Let Me In" and "The Road". Looks like this could be another Australian star on the rise.
