JAMES FRANCO TAKES THE LEAD IN "RISE OF THE APES"

It seems that Fox has found the actor to take the lead role in their upcoming prequel "Rise of the Apes" the movie which will explain the events which lead to "Planet of the Apes". James Franco will join the ape drama in which he will play a young scientist who has a key role in the conflict that started between the apes and humans. The film will be set in present-day San Francisco where a string of genetic experiments leads to apes becoming intelligent and creating a power struggle between the apes and humans. Directed by Rupert Wyatt the film will start shooting this July and is set to premiere June 24, 2011.

  5. Hope this is better than the Planet of Apes remake. It does sound promising but you know how that can wind up!

  6. Is this one linked to the remake Planet of the Apes? or the original movies?

  10. I just knew that Franco wasn't Fox's first choice for this film. It was Franco's "Spider-Man" co-star Tobey Maguire. Maguire lost the role because he wanted to have more input in the film. After reading the script, he came back to the table with lots of notes for the studio. At that point, the conversation ended and Fox immediately closed a deal with Franco.

  11. Oh, it seems then that Tobey has become conceited after marrying the daughter of the big boss??? What has happened to him anyway? I haven't seen him since SPIDERMAN.

  15. yep, I was thinking of putting one of the Gucci pics, but they are mostly black and white :) My favourite are Henry Cavill for Dunhill and Jude Law for Burberry :)and off course my absolutely favourite celeb model in adds - Wentworth Miller in Gap adds :)

  16. My favorite male celeb model in adds has to be ... Swede Arsenal player Freddie Ljungberg for Calvin Klein. I know he's a soccer player, not a movie star, but he's still a celeb, right? :)

    Wentworth Miller... 2... no wait.... 3 thumbs up! :)
    I wish I could have looked this why when I'm 38! It's still hard to believe Wentworth is 38!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I know which Freddie's pics you are thinking of :)
    Yes, I also can't believe Wenty is almost 40!!! And did you know he has an MA in English just like me :))
    After Gerard Butler, he is the second celebrity that brought HOLLYWOOD SPY the biggest number of visits and readers after I've posted this story:

  18. I've read this post and believed the story, and I think they're such a lovely couple :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. me to :))) But you wouldn't believe the number of angry e-mails I've received after that from girls who won't accept the truth. I thought I had started III World War :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Truth like this is always hard to accept. Poor girls! :) They're just jealous, Dezz, because all of them realize that regarding these circumstances, even you and me have bigger chance with Wentworth, than they do. Ha-ha! :)

  21. Oh, he'd fall for us in a blink of an eye :)

GIVE SOME LOVE TO YOUR DEZZY :)
