The incredible John Lithgow (“Dexter”) is the latest addition to Rise of the Apes, Fox’s prequel to its Planet of the Apes franchise starring James Franco. Our exclusive news that Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire) was in talks was also confirmed as she’s now locked down as the movie’s female lead, a primatologist. 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. The movie shoots this summer in British Columbia.
