Casting looks like it’s in full swing for the sequel to RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, with 16-year old Kodi Smit-McPhee joining the project. Smit-McPhee has worked with director Matt Reeves once before, on the unnecessary yet admittedly excellent 2010 remake of LET THE RIGHT ONE IN, but it’s his debut in the haunting apocalypse drama THE ROAD that will resonate in most people’s minds. There’s currently no info on who the young actor will play, but expect more details soon.
As reported earlier this week, Smit-McPhee joins ZERO DARK THIRTY’s Jason Clarke as the first actors (other than the returning Andy Serkis) to sign on to the film, which will be set 15 years after the original.
We'll have more as it develops...
DAWN OF THE PLANET OF APES opens May 23rd 2014.
