Harrelson Set As Third “Apes” Film Villain

Woody Harrelson is set to star as a villain in 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment’s “War of the Planet of the Apes,” the upcoming third film in the ‘Apes’ franchise since the reboot and eighth film overall.

Harrelson will play a character called the Colonel, but further story details are being kept under wraps. He joins another recent addition to the cast in the form of Gabriel Chavarria (“East Los High”)

Matt Reeves, who directed last year’s “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” returns to direct from a script by Mark Bomback. Dylan Clark is producing and shooting begins this Fall in Vancouver ahead of a 2017 release.
