Tom Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy in the “Harry Potter” movies, will be bringing that bad boy attitude to Fox’s “Rise of the Apes”, their prequel to the “Planet of the Apes” franchise, set to star James Franco, Freida Pinto, and John Lithgow, with Rupert Wyatt directing.
Felton will be playing the son of Brian Cox’s character, who owns the evil facility that houses the apes, where the animals are tortured and not allowed to play tag on their off days. You know, when the meanie humans aren’t experimenting on them, cause that’s what meanie humans do to apes, you know, we experiment on their asses. Thus, that role “rising” and killing humans thing. See? And you thought they were just bad apes, huh?
“Lords of the Ring” CG guy Andy Serkis will be supplying the movements for Caesar, the head ape who leads the rebellion.
