Just days after Zero Dark Thirty star Jason Clarke signed on for Twentieth Century Fox's Dawn of the Planet of the Apes comes word, via Deadline, that Kodi Smit-McPhee will be starring as well.

The film is set 15 years after the events of Rise of the Planet of the Apes and finds most of humanity wiped out and the intelligent apes ruling over the world. Part of the film's focus is said to be on a small group of San Francisco-based scientists that are forming a resistance against the apes and part follows Andy Serkis' Caesar as he, like his namesake, tries to maintain order and power within his new civilization.

Smit-McPhee, who recently voiced the title character in ParaNorman, will be re-teaming on Dawn with director Matt Reeves. The two previously worked together on 2010's Let Me In.

Featuring a screenplay by Scott Z. Burns, Amanda Silver, Rick Jaffa and Mark Bomback, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes hits theaters on May 23, 2014.
