The Wrap confirms that Steve Zahn will step into a motion capture suit and play an ape in WAR OF THE PLANET OF THE APES.

There isn’t much information besides the fact that he will be playing an ape new to the franchise. Regardless, this is pretty cool news. I really like Steve Zahn and think he is a fairly underrated talent in Hollywood. This installment continues to bring in some really exciting, fresh blood to the franchise. Remember that we are getting Woody Harrelson playing a villain known only as “The Colonel.”

I seriously cannot wait to see anything from this movie. I’m not monkeying around.
