It was only a couple of days ago when we alerted you to the fact that director Matt Reeves' DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES had begun filming and now that shooting has officially commenced on the highly anticipated sequel to 2011's RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES we can expect to hear and see more updates on a semi-regular basis. Only a couple of days into the production and we already have our first behind-the-scenes shot, courtesy of Matt Reeves Twitter profile, which reveals a pretty cool image from the New Orleans set featuring Andy Serkis in his motion capture suit as Caeser on a horse. Check it out below!
A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.
DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES also stars Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Enrique Murciano, Kirk Acevedo and Judy Greer. Peter Chernin, Dylan Clark, Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver are producing. The film is eyeing a release on May 23, 2014.
