Andy Serkis as Ceasar in ‘Rise of the Apes’

Andy Serkis (The Lord of the Rings, King Kong) is the latest to join the upcoming prequel joining James Franco, John Lithgow, Freida Pinto, and possibly Don Cheadle.

“Rupert Wyatt will direct the feature, which focuses on a scientist (Franco) who has been working on a cure for Alzheimer’s that is being tested on apes. The test subject named Caesar evolves rapidly, and the scientist takes him home to live with him and protects him from cruel doctors. Lithgow will play Franco’s Alzheimer’s-stricken father. Pinto is the movie’s female lead, a primatologist.”

Rise of the Apes currently has a release date of June 24, 2011.
