Another joins the sequel...
Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Road, Let Me In) has joined the cast of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Deadline reports that Smit-McPhee will join Jason Clarke and Andy Serkis in the Matt Reeves-directed sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which is set for release on May 23rd, 2014.
The film is set 15 years after the events of Rise of the Planet of the Apes and finds most of humanity wiped out and the intelligent apes ruling over the world. Part of the film's focus is said to be on a small group of San Francisco-based scientists that are forming a resistance against the apes and part follows Serkis' Caesar as he, like his namesake, tries to maintain order and power within his new civilization.
