Gabriel Chavarria (“Low Riders,” “East Los High”) is set to play one of two human leads in “War Of The Planet Of The Apes,” the third film in the rebooted series for 20th Century Fox.
Very little is known about the new ‘Apes’ film beyond the return of “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” director Matt Reeves and scribe Mark Bomback in their respective roles. At this point it’s also unclear what kind of character Chavarria will be playing beyond him being human.
The only hints of the plot have been that Andy Serkis’ Caesar becomes a Moses-style figure who must lead his people in a war he tried to prevent. Shooting begins in October in Vancouver.
