James Franco Cast In Apes Movie

Comingsoon have reported that James Franco has been cast in the new film ‘Rise of the Apes’. Franco’s character is reported to be a human scientist who plays an important role in the war between man and ape.

The film which is planned for a 2011 release is something of an origin story set in present day during a time of genetic engineering leading to the development of intelligent apes and presumably a war for the planet itself.

Franco is a talented actor with a very natural screen presence, he has delivered a diverse range of roles over the years in films such as the Spiderman trilogy, Milk, Pineapple Express, Flyboys and Tristan + Isolde. He can also be seen in the comedy Date Night which is currently in cinemas.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
