First Behind-the-Scenes Report from Dawn of the Planet of the ApesBelieve it or not, Godzilla isn’t the only creature invading Canada as the first report from the set of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is here, and we snapped it up for you to dig on to keep your morning cooking!

The flick stars Andy Serkis, Keri Russell, Kodi-Smit McPhee, Judy Greer, William Clarke, and Gary Oldman. Fox’s upcoming sequel is set 15 years after the events of Rise of the Planet of the Apes. The plot is for the most part under wraps, but we do know two aspects of it… One focus is on the group of human scientists who are struggling to survive alone in San Francisco. Another aspect of the story is the struggle of intelligent ape Caesar, played by Serkis, to maintain dominance over his kingdom.

Matt Reeves, stepping into the shoes originally worn by Rupert Wyatt, is directing the sequel to Fox’s 2011 hit. Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa, who penned the first installment, wrote the initial draft for Dawn. Scott Burns had written a draft for Wyatt, but when Reeves came on board, the studio and producers wanted something tailored specifically for him and hired Mark Bomback to do a rewrite. It should also be noted that Bomback did some uncredited script doctoring on Rise. Peter Chernin is back as producer.

Fox has set a May 23, 2014, release date.

Look for more as it comes.
