James Franco in the first image from Rise of the Apes
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
With all the things James “I like jobs” Franco is doing these days, some might have forgotten he’s actually an actor. Case in point; here’s an image from one of his upcoming films RISE OF THE APES, which is the prequel to PLANET OF THE APES and it will of course teach us all a very important lesson about why we shouldn’t fornicate with apes. Or something like that…I know there are apes involved. The film actually blends some science fiction and non-fiction and will serve as the “explanation” to how apes eventually took over the world in the other movies. The film also stars John Lithgow, Andy Serkis, Freida Pinto, Brian Cox and Tom Felton and will hit theaters on November 23rd.
Franco can next be seen hosting the Academy Awards this Sunday night with co-host Anne Hathaway. They even did a little sketch to GREASE. Yeah, I don’t get it either, but at least the Oscars will have something different going for it this year.
