25 August 2015 7:56 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new report from Deadline has confirmed that A Better Life actor Gabriel Chavarria is in talks to play one of two human leads in 2017’s War of the Planet of the Apes.

The young actor, who made his feature film debut in 2007’s Freedom Writers, is a series regular on Hulu’s series East Los High. He is also set to star in Universal’s 2016 film Low Riders alongside Melissa Benoist (Supergirl), Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives) and Demian Bichir (The Hateful Eight). 

War will be the third installment in the Planet of the Apes reboot franchise, which began in 2011 with Rise of the Planet of the Apes and continued in 2014 with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Rise was a surprise hit when it was released in theaters over four years ago, grossing more than $480 million on a $93 million budget; however, Dawn proved to be an even bigger box office success, »

Gabriel Chavarria is the first to sign up to the latest Planet Of The Apes film...

The terrific Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes and Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes have left us really rather excited for the next chapter in the saga. War Of The Planet Of The Apes is due in cinemas in 2017, and Matt Reeves, who directed the last movie, is back to helm this one.

Mark Bomback is penning the screenplay again, and Andy Serkis will once more be reprising the role of Caesar. And now we have the first fresh piece of casting news for the new movie.

Gabriel Chavarria, who's starring in the upcoming movie Low Riders, is in talks for a key role in War Of The Planet Of The Apes. What that exact role is, as you might expect, isn't yet clear.

Gabriel Chavarria Lands A Lead Role In War Of The Planet Of The Apes

24 August 2015 8:17 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

20th Century Fox's upcoming sci-fi sequel War Of The Planet Of The Apes has found one of its two human leads in Gabriel Chavarria (East Los High). He joins director Matt Reeves, who also helmed the previous installment, and star Andy Serkis (Avengers: Age Of Ultron), who's returning for his third go-round as franchise hero Caesar. Mark Bomback (The Wolverine) is penning the script. Details about Chavarria's role as well as details on the film's plot remain under wraps. Considering that the original 2011 reboot Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes grossed over $481 million worldwide, a sum which its 2014 sequel Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes nearly doubled with its $708 million global haul, Fox certainly has high hopes for this upcoming third installment.  War Of The Planet Of The Apes is expected to hit theaters July 14, 2017; a week after Disney's Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales »

Gabriel Chavarria Part Of War Of The Planet Of The Apes

24 August 2015 5:57 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

We might not have heard a lot about the next Planet Of The Apes film, but that’s because director Matt Reeves and co-writer Mark Bomback have been quietly working on the sequel to Dawn, War Of The Planet Of The Apes. Reeves is finally ready to start the casting process, with news arriving that Gabriel Chavarria has scored one of the lead roles. Details are sketchy about what the film will cover, though if you watched Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes – and a lot of people did, hence the latest addition to the franchise – you know that (spoiler alert) after a conflict between the human survivors of the virus and Caesar’s (Andy Serkis) simian forces, a sort of truce was reached, one that was threatened by the coming of human reinforcements from outside San Francisco. We now know that Chavarria will be playing one of the »

'War of the Planet of the Apes' Casts 'Lowriders' Star in the Lead

24 August 2015 5:31 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Gabriel Chavarria, who stars in Universal's upcoming drama Lowriders, is being eyed for one of the two main human roles in 20th Century Fox's Planet of the Apes 3. We reported back in May that the the sequel is now entitled War of the Planet of the Apes, and this movie title has now been confirmed by Deadline. No details were given about his character, but the role was compared to James Franco's role in 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

The War of the Planet of the Apes title certainly make sense, since last year's Dawn of the Planet of the Apes teased an all-out war between the apes and the humans. 20th Century Fox has already set a July 14, 2017 release date for Planet of the Apes 3, which currently has that release date all to itself, although there is plenty of competition around it.

Gabriel Chavarria Is Human In Third "Apes"

24 August 2015 3:10 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Gabriel Chavarria ("Low Riders," "East Los High") is set to play one of two human leads in "War Of The Planet Of The Apes," the third film in the rebooted series for 20th Century Fox.

Very little is known about the new 'Apes' film beyond the return of "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" director Matt Reeves and scribe Mark Bomback in their respective roles. At this point it's also unclear what kind of character Chavarria will be playing beyond him being human.

The only hints of the plot have been that Andy Serkis' Caesar becomes a Moses-style figure who must lead his people in a war he tried to prevent. Shooting begins in October in Vancouver.

Ufc Champion Ronda Rousey To Star As Herself In Autobiography Adaptation My Fight/Your Fight

3 August 2015 2:11 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For a long time, the world has needed more films that tell the stories of accomplished women, because the stories of men are everywhere, all the time. If you were to take the output of Hollywood as a reflection of reality, you would be forgiven for concluding that women have never achieved anything of note at all. The 2015 Oscar nominations were the perfect demonstration of this – with four of the eight Best Picture nominees being biographical tales, and all of them being about men. It seems that this trend will soon be challenged, however, as Paramount has snapped up the rights to My Fight/Your Fight – the autobiography of Ronda Rousey.

Rousey is an accomplished woman indeed. In addition to being a talented mixed martial artist, she also became the first U.S woman to win an Olympic medal in Judo in 2008. She is also a Ufc champion, and has »

Ronda Rousey Starring In Her Own Biopic

3 August 2015 11:49 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

You might argue that at 28, Ufc champ and actor Ronda Rousey is young to be writing her autobiography, let alone locking in a deal to star in the film based on the book. But she’s led such an interesting life so far that you can see why Paramount might be keen to buy the rights. The studio has Dawn Of The Planet Of The ApesMark Bomback adapting the book My Fight/Your Fight, which Rousey wrote with older sister Maria Burns Ortiz. It takes a hard stare at the many challenges – a tough birth, communication issues when young, struggling to make her way in the brutal and often sexist world of Ultimate Fighting – that she has overcome in her life and career, on her way to combining a dominant run in the Octagon with an embryonic film career. Nothing is yet known about what form the film will take, »
