And Freida Pinto!
Sources are reporting that James Franco is slated to star in a prequel to the classic flick Planet of the Apes called Rise of the Apes. This morning, he got his leading lady!
James will be playing a well-meaning scientist searching for a cure for Alzheimer's by experimenting with apes. Through his work, along with the help of a primatologist played by Freida, one of the apes named Caesar evolves and begins to hatch a plan of world domination by his species.
Anyone else really hoping apes kick the shiz out of James? Someone really should!
Are U excited about this movie?
