Production has begun on Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and now we have the set photos to prove it. Dawn is set 15 years after Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which means a new cast of humans led by Keri Russell, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, and Kodi Smit-McPhee. The one constant is Andy Serkis, reprising his lead role as Caesar the ape. Judy Greer is the major addition to the motion-capture crew, playing a potential love interest for Caesar.
The story jumps back and forth between Caesar’s new kingdom and a small human colony in San Francisco. Caesar fights to maintain dominance over his subjects; the colony fights to survive. Directed by Matt Reeves (Let Me In), Dawn of the Planet of the Apes opens May 23, 2014. Check out the set photos featuring Serkis, Russell, Clarke, and a band of motion-capture apes after the jump.
