CONFIRMED: Bloody Disgusting learned that offers have been made to both Frida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire) and Don Cheadle (Col. James ‘Rhodey’ Rhodes/War Machine in Iron Man) for Twentieth Century Fox’s “Ceasar” which we’re assuming is the former title of Planet of the Apes: Rise of the Apes. Assuming our intel is correct, they’d join James Franco in the Rupert Wyatt directed prequel described as an origin story. It’s set in present day San Francisco and deals with the aftermath of man’s experiments with genetic engineering that lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy. Franco will play a driven scientist who becomes a crucial figure in the war between humans and apes. Fox is aiming for a summer June 24, 2011 release.
