Via their Twitter account we now know that 20th Century Fox has added Brian Cox to the cast of Rise Of The Apes — the Planet of the Apes prequel. The official announcement came in Twitter form and apart from the obvious announcement we have no other info on it, but what we do know is that Cox will be joining a cast of James Franco, John Lithgow, Andy Serkis and Freida Pinto with more still to come. i.e be announced.
Not a lot has been revealed about the film but according to a press release earlier this year the story is prequel to the first Apes and will centre in present day San Francisco about a scientist (James Franco) that is developing a cure for Alzheimer’s while testing on his pet monkey, Caesar. Experiments with genetic engineering lead to development of intelligence of apes. And so the war for supremacy begins!
