Onto the next fanchise, we see!

Tom Felton, fresh off of his stint as Draco Malfoy in all of the Harry Potter films, has signed on to appear in the new Planet of the Apes prequel, Rise of the Apes - and he'll playing a human!

He explains:

"It's called Rise of The Apes and it is a fantastic story and explanation of how the apes from Planet of the Apes came to power. It's definitely one of the best scripts I've ever read. The first question my friends asked was, 'Are you playing a human?' and when I said yes they were quite disappointed - because they wanted to see me as a monkey. We've got Andy Serkis, from Lord of The Rings, playing the lead ape all with motion capture. It's really pushing the boundaries of Avatar-style CGI, so it's gonna really set a new precedent I think. In the film my character's father owns a primate facility. Of course I'm not the kindest man to my residents and I torture them with a whole host of weapons."

Wow! All of the apes are going to be done in motion capture?!

That's a huge revelation!

This is going to change the entire look of the movie! Let's hope that they don't mess this up, though!

If this CGI isn't done right, this whole thing could be an absolute disaster!

What do U think?? Are U excited for Rise of the Apes??

    Sounds cool. I wonder if Andy Serkis is getting sick of getting offered all these motion capture roles by now LOL…he has played an ape (Kong) before though so this shouldn't be hard for him.
