The film features the return of Andy Serkis in his phenomenal role of Caesar.

Deadline reports that Smit-McPhee will once again join a Reeves picture, this time in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.  The pair previously worked together in Reeves’ last directorial effort, Let Me In.  

Reeves recently stepped in to replace director Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) who left the picture citing creative differences.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is due out May 23, 2014.
