Woody Harrelson is gearing up to star in the next Planet of the Apes film, War for the Planet of the Apes, but he won't have to wear a motion-capture suit. The movie will continue to follow our primate hero Caesar, played by Andy Serkis via magic, with the director of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Matt Reeves, and its screenwriter, Mark Bomback, also returning. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Harrelson will play an evil human known as the Colonel. Upright walking bad!
