The Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation feature film “War for the Planet of the Apes” is now officially in pre-production, and the casting executives have launched a talent search to find actors who can portray realistic intelligent apes, with green-screen CGI heavy filming to take place beginning in January, 2016. The actors chosen will be required to attend a 3-week “ape boot camp” that will train for realistic simian physical movement and action sequences.

Saturn Award nominee Rick Jaffa will produce along with Peter Chernin, Dylan Clark, and Saturn Award nominee Amanda Silver. Executive producers are Mark Bomback and Mary McLaglen. Starring in “War for the Planet of the Apes” is two-time Academy Award nominee Woody Harrelson, and Golden Globe Award nominee Andy Serkis returning as as Caesar. “War for the Planet of the Apes” is scheduled to hit theaters on Jul 14, 2017.
