Look at that!
Our gurl Felicity is having herself a bit of a comeback…and a REUNION, apparently!
Keri Russell, who jumped back onto the scene with new FX series The Americans and sci-fi horror flick Dark Skies, has secured herself in the lead role in the upcoming sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, titled Dawn of the Planet of the Apes!
And get this!
The co-creator of the WB drama on which she got her start, Matt Reeves, will be once again directing her for this!
We bet it will be JUST like old times!
Except instead of Scott Speedman's romantic advances, it will be volatile, extra-intelligent monkeys trying to either enslave or murder her!
But hey! At least she's got the also-cast Jason Clarke and Kodi Smit-McPhee on her side!
So excited to check this one out!
Even if James Franco won't be returning for another round of those "damn dirty apes!"
What do U think?? Are U looking forward to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes?
