What's up guys and gals,  

It looks like director Matt Reeves has found the perfect guy to play opposite Andy Serkis as Caesar in his Planet of the Apes sequel War of the Planet of the Apes.

None other than the man himself Woody Harrelson has been cast as the lead human "bad guy" in the film according to reports from over at THR.

According to The Hollywood Reporter

 Woody Harrelson has nabbed one of the leading human roles in Fox’s latest Planet of the Apes installment.

Matt Reeves, who directed 2014’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, has returned as helmer for the new project, which is titled War for the Planet of the Apes. Mark Bomback also is back as screenwriter and Chernin Entertainment as the producer. Dylan Clark is also producing.

It is unclear who is returning to the new movie, which will continue the story of Caesar, the evolved ape who is brought to life via motion capture by Andy Serkis.

Plot details are being kept secret, but Harrelson will play a character called the Colonel.

It was recently reported that Gabriel Chavarria would play one of the new characters, but insiders say his part is small.

No other details are known about the plot as of now, check back here at ECMG for more details on the upcoming sequel.
