Production on Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is underway and today 20th Century Fox revealed a first look at the title treatment for the film, which is currently targeting a May 23, 2014 release.

Directed by Matt Reeves (Let Me In, Cloverfield), the film is set 15 years after the events of 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes and will focus on a growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar (Andy Serkis), threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth's dominant species.

Yesterday the studio announced the start of principal photography and noted that Toby Kebbell and Enrique Murciano had joined the cast, which already included Serkis, Jason Clarke, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell and Judy Greer.

    I was under the impression that the sequel ran into troubles and got canceled. Anyway, I liked the first movie, hope this is equally good.

    I just recently saw a bit of the original not too long ago. I watched them as a kid so the re boot is exciting for me. I do hope it ends up being made.
