Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Posted Wednesday, August 31, 2011, at 9:32 AM

Set in present day San Francisco, "Rise of the Apes" deals with the aftermath of man's experiments with genetic engineering that lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy. James Franco will play a driven scientist who becomes a crucial figure in the war between humans and apes.

Said to be a reboot of the "Planet of the Apes" franchise. Peter Jackson's visual effects house WETA Digital will render photo-realistic apes, rather than costumed actors, for the first time in the franchise.
