Judy Greer (“The Descendants”) will monkey around with Jason Clarke on “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”, the latest in the long-running man vs. chimp series that gave Charlton Heston a hefty bank balance back in the era of flower power.

Greer, revealed Vulture, will be donning a motion-capture suit to play the female chimp Cornelia (glimpsed in the first film, in which she was played by dancer Devyn Dalton) in the big-time flick.

“For so long I haven’t been able to say anything about it, so this is exciting!” Greer says. “It’s a very different kind of work than I’m used to…I’m not going to be wearing Manolo Blahniks in this one.”

To say Greer is familiar with the “Apes” franchise is an understatement.

“I married a man who … I’m gonna use the word obsessed. He is obsessed with Planet of the Apes,” she laughed. “We had a chimp husband-and-wife cake topper at our wedding. At the cocktail hour, we played Planet of the Apes and Rise of the Planet of the Apes on two separate televisions in the bar area. And on the wedding gift I bought him, a vintage Rolex, I had it engraved, ‘Ape shall not kill ape.’ I was then told that, technically, it’s ‘Ape shall never kill ape,’ but there wasn’t enough space for engraving purposes.”

The actress is going to have to remind herself that she can’t be spilling secrets from the set – regardless of how much her hubby pushes her.

“It’s gonna be fun to have some secrets, but I have to be oh-so-careful. I’m not supposed to say anything to anyone, so once I start shooting, I won’t be able to talk to anybody!” she said. “I feel like I’ll be on one of those reality shows where they sequester the Survivors until it’s over, or a jury where they have to put you up in a hotel so you don’t talk.” And no one is more sensitive to her newfound spoilers than her husband. Laughed Greer, “It’s funny, because when I talk to my husband about the movie, he’s like, ‘I don’t want to know! I do want to know! Do you think you should tell me? Don’t tell me!'”

“Dawn” reunites Greer with her “Suddenly 30″ co-star Andy Serkis, as well as teams her with Clarke, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Keri Russell, and Gary Oldman. “Felicity” alum Matt Reeves directs.
