  • The Upcoming Planet of the Apes offers rare screen time opportunity

The director of the War of the Planet of the Apes offers the fans to submit a video doing their best ape expression and the winner will get a chance to be in the next movie.

Matt Reeves and Andy Serkis, who plays Caesar in the Planet of the Apes films, recently teased a contest on Sunday night. The contest entails that one lucky winner will earn an on-camera role in the upcoming War of the Planet of the Apes. The limitation to that role being that the winner’s face won’t be seen, as he or she will be playing a motion captured ape in a scene.

As announced during Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead, fans can enter the contest through logging in on apescontest.com. The major requirement for the submission includes a video of “your most life-like ape imitation.” 

The winner will fly to set, dress up in a mo-cap suit and “become an ape in Caesar’s greatest battle yet.

Watch below the first footage of War For The Planet Of The Apes that also contains ape contest announcement.

Mark Bomback is screenwriter of the film who co-wrote script with Reeves. The cast of the War For the Planet of the Apes includes Andy Serkis, Steve Zahn, Judy Greer, Gabriel Chavarria, Karin Konoval and Woody Harrelson. War for the Planet of the Apes will hit theaters on July 14, 2017.
