‘The third instalment of the rebooted billion-dollar Planet of the Apes franchise — starring motion-captured Andy Serkis as Ape leader Caesar– started filming in metro Vancouver last Fall and wrapped early this year. We first met Caesar as a genetically-enhanced baby chimp living in San Francisco with humans until he is captured and placed in a primate shelter where he leads an ape uprising in Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Ten years later in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, talking chimpanzee Caesar has his own family and is the established leader of an Apes colony in a world where humanity has been virtually wiped out by a simian plague. An unexpected incursion by human survivors leads to civil war among the Apes with Caesar prevailing as King of Apes.


War for the Planet of the Apes takes place some time later with the Apes in prison at the  mercy of the Humans. Woody Harrelson is the Colonel and Steve Zahn a new ape, with local actors Sara Canning and Aleks Paunovics going simian to stand with Caesar.

Directed by Matt Reeves, War For The Planet of the Apes filmed mainly in studio and at a sprawling south Richmond prison set.
