Keri Russell Joins Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
So far we have three factions in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. We have the apes led by Caesar, the scientists led by Jason Clarke, and the human camp led by Gary Oldman. With all these different groups, where is the leading lady going to end up? I’m going to take a guess and say not the ape one.
Variety is reporting that Keri Russell has signed on for Matt Reeves’ sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes. She will, of course, be the female lead and probably Jason Clarke’s love interest. At this point we don’t know any details about her character. If I had to guess, I’d say she will be Gary Oldman’s squeeze in the human camp before being swept away by Clarke.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is set for release on May 23rd, 2014.
