Another Role From ‘Rise of the Apes’ Offered to David Oyelowo

Bloody Disgusting learned today that David Oyelowo (The Last King of Scotland) was offered the role of “Steve Jacobs” in Twentieth Century Fox’s Rise of the Apes, their Planet of the Apes prequel that just sounds like weaker version of I Am Legend. If he agrees, he’ll join James Franco, John Lithgow, Freida Pinto, Andy Serkis, and Brian Cox in the Rupert Wyatt directed pic hitting theaters June 24, 2011. Apes is 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.
