Woody Harrelson enlists as bad guy for War for the Planet of the Apes

09.15.2015

Woody Harrelson is ready for some full-blown ape warfare.

With Matt Reeves returning to direct the next chapter of the PLANET OF THE APES prequel sequels, WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES, the director has secured one of his main human leads in the form of good ol' Woody. Harrelson will be serving as one of the film's baddies, playing a character mysteriously known only as the Colonel. No other details on Harrelson's motivations have managed to leak out of the tight-lipped production, but I think it's safe to guess that he'll be key to the downfall of humanity. Plus, you know there's that scene of a showdown between Harrelson and Andy Serkis' Caesar that is the type of sequence dreams are made of.

It's still a ways off, but WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES draws the battle lines in your theater on July 14, 2017.

Good addition to the cast, though he'd also be awesome as an insane ape character.
Have to say I'm really looking forward to this sequel - monkeys packin' automatic weapons is generally cinematic gold in my book.

Since his early days on Cheers, I thought I'd never seen Woody taking roles like these, like he has in the past ten years. He's definitely gotten better with age and I'm excited to see him in this franchise.

I agree. I remember the first time I watched Natural Born Killers I thought to myself "This guy was Woody Boyd???". I think that was the turning point for him and that's a good thing too.

I'm so game to see Woody in the movie, either as the hero or the villain.

I was hoping for a moment he'd get to wear the mo-cap. But as a human Woody Harrelson is still one of the most dynamic guys out there, and whether he's good, bad, or somewhere in between, I will always be ready to watch what he does.

This is good news. Harrelson seems to have really found his stride the last few years, showing his dramatic skills in True Detective and Out of the Furnace, and comedy in films like Zombieland and Now You See Me, plus a mix of both in Hunger Games. Hope he keeps it up.

Woody has always been awesome, but I agree he's been particularly good lately.

You are right HoyleHaw, he's been awesome since starting on Cheers. It just seems like his successes are a little more mainstream now.

I've long believed Woody Harrelson would be the downfall of man.

Awesome casting. Harrelson is very versatile and can play one mean son of a bitch (ie Out of the Furnace). Wouldn't mind if they brought back James Franco's character as well.
