There are some new behind-the-scenes photos from the upcoming Rise of the Apes over at TheMPPC and i09 (caught ‘em over at Blastr). They feature either a mo-cap stunt actor (Andy Serkis is playing Caesar, the Wonder Chimp) or the guy with the most inventive way to get next to James Franco I’ve seen yet (although personally, I’d slap that get up on too in order to get within restraining order violation distance of Freida Pinto).
The synopsis for the film: An origin story set in present day San Francisco, where man’s [Franco] own
experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of
intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy. John Lithgow, Tom Felton, Brian Cox and David Hewlett co-star. You can click the images to enlarge. Rise of the Apes is set for a June 24, 2011 release.
