James Franco: 'Rise of the Apes' This Summer!

James Franco is set to star in Rise of the Apes, a prequel to Planet of the Apes!

The 32-year-old actor will begin shooting this July in the story of what happens when genetic engineering leads to ape intelligence so great that they battle humans for superiority. James will play “a driven scientist who becomes a crucial figure in the war between humans and apes,” according to Variety.

Rise of the Apes will hit theaters June 24, 2011.

Also up for James this spring is his return to General Hospital! He’ll be reprising his role as Franco, a man who turns Port Charles upside down.

He looks like a drug addict. I don’t know what the heck happened to him but now, he acts like he’s gay and using drugs, smoking, and drinking! He’s a DOUCHE!

I actually, gasp, like the idea of this film. My dad is a “Planet of the Apes” junkie and watches the films all the time…maybe I can talk him into seeing it with me. Of course he’d be seeing it for the story and I’d be seeing it for the acting, but whatever. Lol! James Franco rocks my socks.

Yes! i love seeing a lot of james franco! he does look a bit tired in that pic though
