Caesar has a couple more allies, as The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop that two actors will be returning in War for the Planet of the Apes, the tertiary installment in the sci-fi franchise.
Judy Greer will return and don the motion capture suit once again. Greer will reprise her role of Cornelia, the chimpanzee wife of ape leader Caesar, played by Andy Serkis.
Also returning is Karin Konoval. She’ll be playing Maurice, the orangutan with the gentle disposition that often acts as Caesar’s confidant and best friend.
Steve Zahn rounds out the ape cast so far as an as-yet-unnamed simian. Meanwhile Woody Harrelson will play the film’s main antagonist, the villain known as The Colonel.
Matt Reeves is currently in the midst of principle photography, and even shared the first official image with us the other day, harkening to a possible connection with the original film series. War for the Planet of the Apes is set to hit theaters July 14, 2017.
