Judy Greer in for some monkey business, joins cast of DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES

Judy Greer (Arrested Development, The Descendents)   was recently interviewed and she confirmed herself as a cast member for the upcoming Dawn of The Planet of The Apes. Read on for the full details below.

judygreerapesGreer will be portraying Cornelia, the chimp previously played by Devyn Dalton in the original Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

“Dawn” is the sequel to the blockbuster Rise of the Planet of the Apes with Cloverfield director Matt Reeves taking over the helming duties and Andy Serkis returning in the performance-capture role of Caesar, joined by Jason Clarke, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Gary Oldman and Keri Russell.

Vulture recently talked to  Greer and she had the following to say about the film.

“It’s a very different kind of work than I’m used to,” she told them. “I’m not going to be wearing Manolo Blahniks in this one,”. According to the story, Greer met with Reeves for the role of Cornelia after being encouraged by her 13 Going on 30 co-star (and “Rise” star) Andy Serkis.

It was also revealed that Greer is a major Apes fan in general and even her wedding had various Apes references. “We had a chimp husband-and-wife cake topper at our wedding. At the cocktail hour, we played ‘Planet of the Apes’ and ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ on two separate televisions in the bar area. And on the wedding gift I bought him, a vintage Rolex, I had it engraved, ‘Ape shall not kill ape.’ I was then told that, technically, it’s ‘Ape shall never kill ape,’ but there wasn’t enough space for engraving purposes.”

Greeg can be seen in the upcoming Carrie remake, out October 18th,  as well.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is scheduled for release on May 23, 2014.
