Awesome news surrounding one my personal favorite franchises. War of the Planet of the Apes, the third movie in the reboot/prequel for APES and the follow-up to the unbelievably awesome Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is getting set for filming. Matt Reeves will direct and while casting is still in the works, we now know that Gabriel Chavarria is going to star in the film.
Chavarria is relatively unknown, but he appeared in 2007's Freedom Writers and he's currently starring in the Hulu original series East Los High. It's likely that they'll cast a big name to star alongside Chavarria in an effort to keep things at least somewhat star-studded.
War of the Planet of the Apes is currently set to hit theaters July 14, 2017.
