Comic-Con ’11: Don’t Get Too Close to the ‘Apes’

Keeping with the frenzied hype of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Twentieth Century Fox has released yet another clip out of the San Diego Comic-Con that rattles star Tom Felton when he gets too close to the monkey cage.

Rupert Wyatt’s prequel arriving in theaters August 5 is described as an origin story, and 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.” James Franco will play a driven scientist who becomes a crucial figure in the war between humans and apes.
