Eka Darville has signed on to appear in Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes. The news was revealed by The Hollywood Reporter. Details regarding his character are currently unknown. He joins the previously announced Owen Teague, Freya Allen and Peter Macon.
Darville is perhaps best known for his role as Malcolm Ducasse in the Marvel and Netflix series, Jessica Jones. Other credits to his name include CBS All Access anthology thriller Tell Me a Story, Fox’s Empire, Power Rangers R.P.M. and Spartacus.
Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes will be directed by Wes Ball from a screenplay by Josh Friedman (War of the Worlds), Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), and Patrick Aison. This film, the fourth in the rebooted Planet of the Apes franchise, is set to take place many years after the events of 2017’s War for the Planet of the Apes. Production on the film is expected to get underway this month for a 2024 release.
