Gary Oldman will kill all the damn dirty apes in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

The sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes is shaping up nicely. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes has not only retained Andy Serkis in his astounding role as Caesar the revolutionary ape, but they've also managed to find him a worthy nemesis. ComingSoon is reporting that Gary Oldman has been cast as a leader of the endangered human race.

Set 15 years after the primate revolution that started in San Francisco during Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Dawn shows a world ruled by intelligent apes. Most of the humans have been wiped out. The movie takes place inside one of the last remaining human colonies (also in the Bay Area), where a group of scientists have devised a plan to take out the animals. Meanwhile, Cesar struggles to keep the peace between humans and simians.

Dawn is set for release on May 23, 2014.
