Caeser Rides a Horse in New Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Set Photo

Shooting has officially commenced on Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and the film’s director, Matt Reeves, has revealed a new image from the New Orleans set. Featuring Andy Serkis in his motion capture suit, as Caeser on a horse, it would appear he’s stumbled upon some humans. Check it out below!

Directed by Matt Reeves with a script from Scott Z. Burns, Amanda Silver, Rick Jaffa and Mark Bomback, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes continues the story that began in 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes and features a cast that includes Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Enrique Murciano, Kirk Acevedo and Judy Greer.

In the film, a growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.
