Serkis to Star as Caesar in Planet of the Apes

20th Century Fox announced on Twitter that Andy Serkis is reteaming with the Weta Digital team (“The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, King Kong) for Rise of the Apes! He’ll do the performance capture for Caesar, portraying the chimp who leads the simian revolt.

Set in present day San Francisco, Rise of the Apes is a reality-based cautionary tale, a science fiction/science fact blend, where man’s own experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy. For the first time ever in the film series, the movie will feature photo-realistic apes rather than costumed actors.
