Welcome back to Clevver Movies, I'm Chelsea Cannell!
James Franco has already been cast by 20th century fox as the Lead in the upcoming prequel to planet of the Apes, "Rise of the Apes." And now the latest casting rumors have "Iron Man 2" star Don Cheadle and "Slumdog Millionaire's" leading lady Freida Pinto being offered roles in fox's Ape prequel. As of now, however, it's still unconfirmed if these two will or will not be joining the cast, but either way though, it's still Pretty exciting news for what could be shaping up to be a star studded cast.
The Rise of the Apes prequel tells the story of a modern day scientist who conducts genetic experiments on a chimp named Caesar in hopes of developing a cure for Alzheimers. As Caesar becomes more intelligent, the ape goes on to lead a rebellion against his captors, which eventually results in ape domination!
The film will shoot in Vancouver with Rupert Wyatt Directing and is scheduled for release on June 24, 20011.
