Woody Harrelson To Play Villain Known As The Colonel In ‘War of The Planet of The Apes’

Sep 15, 2015

The Hollywood Reporter is saying that actor Woody Harrelson (True Detective, Hunger Games, Natural Born Killers, No Country For Old Men, Rampart) will play a villain only known as the Colonel in Matt Reeves’ War of The Planet of The Apes. There’s no word if Jason Clarke and other human actors will be returning for the film. However, Andy Serkis will indeed be back as apes leader Caesar.

Screen shot 2015-09-15 at 2.22.28 PMI’ll be curious to see if this villainous character, and the film’s plot take a few more cues from Battle for The Planet of The Apes, which Dawn did along with Conquest of The Planet of The Apes. I wouldn’t be terribly shocked if the Colonel is a re-worked version of the militarized human leader Kolp.

We don’t know too much about the film, besides a group of militarized humans on a battleship are on their way to San Francisco to likely to take arms up against the remaining apes.
