The still above from 21 Jump Street is an accurate representation of my reaction to the reveal that the sequel will be called 22 Jump Street. Also after the jump:
- Check out pics from Transformers 4‘s Texas set
- How much of Transformers 4 is set in China?
- Freida Pinto and James Franco won’t return (duh) for more Apes
- Marc Forster is “open” to a World War Z sequel

With Matt Reeves currently filming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, it’s time to fill in the post-production team. First and foremost, Reeves went back to his roots and got himself a composer named Michael Giacchino. You may have heard of the Oscar winner, who previously worked with Reeves on an underrated track for Cloverfield, as well as on Let Me In. Since the pair already have a relationship, it’s not exactly a surprise they’re working together once again. The welcome surprise is we’ll get to hear Giacchino’s spin on another storied franchise.

Pictured above is the new logo for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Its more or less what you’d expect to see.
Pictured below is a new photo from the film, released by director Matt Reeves. It is, I think, exactly what you might hope to see from this film. Three words: apes on horses. (And Jason Clarke confronting them.) See the pic below. Read More »
Matt Reeves has been shooting Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, his sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, for a little while. (Don’t think too much about the prequel/sequel status of these films as they relate to the original Planet of the Apes films — thats just a wormhole.) While we don’t have a photo from the film at this point, the tardy “start of production” announcement does come with news that Toby Kebbell (Wrath of the Titans) and Enrique Murciano (Traffic) have roles in the film, and also reveals more plot info than we’ve previously known.

We’ve still got a ways to go before we can see Matt Reeves‘ Dawn of the Planet of the Apes or David O. Russell‘s untitled Abscam project. Heck, it’ll be months before we even get real trailers for either of them.
But in the meantime, we can pore over set pics to see what the filmmakers and actors have been up to during production. Based on those, Reeves and his team are enjoying getting closer to Mother Nature, while Russell’s stars seem to be engaged in a contest to see who can rock the craziest hair. Hit the jump to out the images.

So far, director Matt Reeves has had no problem casting humans in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. He’s got Kodi Smit-McPhee, Jason Clarke, Keri Russell and Gary Oldman all set to oppose a rising power in Caeser (Andy Serkis) and his ape friends who are slowly but surely gaining control of the planet. Now we know one of the simian additions to the prequel sequel: character actress Judy Greer.
Greer, best known for her work in Arrested Development, The Descendants, and a slew of romantic comedies, will be playing the ape Cornelia. She’ll be a possible love interest for Caesar, based on a character that was introduced in Rise of the Planet of the Apes and who will have a much bigger part this time out. Read Greer’s geeking out over the opportunity below.

Director Matt Reeves is turning to his previous filmography to round out the cast of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. A few weeks back, he cast his Let Me In star Kodi Smit-McPhee in a major role, and now he’s tapped his former Felicity star Keri Russell to take the female lead. Russell is the first actress to board the project, joining actors Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, and Gary Oldman. Hit the jump to keep reading.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Briefly: The cast of Matt Reeves‘ Dawn of the Planet of the Apes just got some extra integrity. Gary Oldman has signed on to play “the leader of a human colony.” Oldman will work alongside the returning Andy Serkis, playing Caesar, and newcomers Jason Clarke and Kodi Smit-McPhee.
We don’t know too much about the story, but do know that it is set fifteen years after the end of rise of the Planet of the Apes, and picks up after most of humanity has been wiped off the earth, leaving evolved primates as the dominant species. One prong of the plot will feature a group of San Francisco scientists who form a resistance (that may be where Oldman fits in, and is likely how Clarke figures in as well) while another follows Caesar as he tries to retain control over the primate faction.
