'War of the Planet of the Apes' Casts Human Lead, Sets Filming Date
The sequel to the critically and commercially successful 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' has cast its male lead. Gabriel Chavarria is one of just two human leads in what is shaping up as an ape-focused sequel, even more-so than 'Dawn'.
The actor is best known for having the lead role in the teen drama 'East Los High'. For the big screen he has recently finished work on 'Low Riders'.
The film will begin filming this October in Vancouver, and is set for a July 14, 2017 release date. Still a little while to go before we see the next chapter in Caesar's story, which director Matt Reeves has said will cement the ape's status as an almost biblical figure in the ape revolution.
