The first photo for Rise of the Apes has hit the web via Sean at ReelComix. Rise of the Apes is a prequel story to Planet of the Apes and stars James Franco, Andy Serkis and Freida Pinto. Directed by Rupart Wyatt its about a scientist played by James Franco who does genetic research which results in the development of super intelligent apes and a species war, namely.. the Rise of the Apes.
I am pretty excited considering the fantastic cast they have tapped to be in the film. Here is hoping it has half the magic of the Planet of the Apes series of films.
