Rise of the Planet of the Apes was as close to a perfect summer film as you can get. The effects spectacle didn’t lack heart and the story made you empathize with the apes even as they ran around mauling the citizens of San Francisco. There was one area, however, where the movie was lacking… what effect does all this apes rising have on Gary Oldman. Problem solved.
The Dark Knight Rises actor has joined on to play Dreyfus, the leader of the human resistance after the apes have taken over. He’ll join the recently cast Jason Clarke and Kodi Smit-McPhee, as well as the returning chief chimp-in-charge, Andy Serkis. (Deadline)
