First look at James Franco in Rise of the Apes

It’s been a little while since we reported on the Planet of the Apes prequel, Rise of the Apes, but it still very much exists. In fact, production has officially wrapped, and we now have our first look at star James Franco doing science-y things!

The image comes courtesy of JoBlo. Franco stars as a young scientist who studies intelligence in apes. His subject, Caesar (a mo-capped Andy Serkis), eventually wages war against humanity. Nice work there Franco!

Rise of the Apes, directed by Rupert Wyatt, also stars Freida Pinto and John Lithgow. It opens in Australia November 24, 2011 and will presumably have a depressing ending. Let’s just hope it’s as crazy as Ape Lincoln!

Discuss: Glad to see Hollywood’s hardest working actor/artist/writer/soap star appear in another big action franchise?
