John Lithgow will return to Broadway to star in new play The Columnist.

The Rise of the Planet of the Apes actor will portray famed journalist Joseph Alsop in The Columnist, which was penned by playwright David Auburn.

Daniel Sullivan, who previously directed Auburn's Proof, has signed on to helm the production.

The Columnist will begin previews next spring, ahead of its April 25, 2012 debut at New York City's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.

Lithgow has worked on Broadway extensively in the past, earning Tony Awards in 1973 for The Changing Room and in 2002 for The Sweet Smell of Success.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes opens in US cinemas on August 5 and in the UK on August 12.
