The film, which also stars Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Gary Oldman is set over ten years after the events of its predecessor, “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”, but exact details are under wraps, as is Russell’s character.
Peter Chernin, Dylan Clark, Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa will produce the film.
Russell currently stars on FX’s spy-drama “The Americans” and her Sci-Fi thriller “Dark Skies” is in theaters now. She will next be seen in Jerusha Hess’ romantic comedy Austenland.
Russell is repped by WME.
