Gary goes ape

Gary Oldman is being tipped to play the leader of the human resistance in the forthcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

The Dark Knight Rises and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy star will portray Dreyfus, who leads a renegade band of human survivors after the apes have taken control of the planet.

Zero Dark Thirty‘s Jason Clarke and Kodi-Smit McPhee have already been cast in the sci-fi thriller, which is set 15 years after Rise of the Planet of the Apes and is directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Let Me In).

Oldman can next been seen in the remake of Robocop.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes swings into cinemas in May next year.
