Ooh! Any excuse to have some seksi James Franco earlier than expected is fine by us!
The upcoming Planet of the Apes prequel/reboot, Rise of the Apes, has been given a few different release dates - originally scheduled for June 24th, before being pushed back to Thanksgiving weekend - but now, 20th Century Fox has once again bumped it up to an August 5th release, marking it as their "last big event movie of the summer!"
The story will allegedly focus on Franco's character in present-day San Francisco, as a scientist attempting to cure Alzheimer's who inadvertantly develops the intelligence in apes, that ultimately leads to the events of the other films!
Excellent! Sounds like it has a lot of promise!
We're definitely interested in checking it out!
What do U think?? Are U excited that Rise of the Apes is coming sooner than originally expected??
