Serkis was among the movie’s cast announced in April 2014. Known more for his motion capture work than his real-life appearance, Serkis is a veteran of movies like Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies, where he played Gollum. More recently, he played Ulysses Klaw in Avengers: Age of Ultron. In the video game world, Serkis played Monkey in developer Ninja Theory’s Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and he’s set to play the villain in Volume.
