Don Cheadle and Freida Pinto in Apes prequel?

06.18.2010

Filming on PLANET OF THE APES: RISE OF THE APES is set to begin filming this fall and Fox is looking at who will co-star alongside James Franco, who will play the scientist who gives apes human intelligence and unwittingly allows them to overthrow humans. Bloody Disgusting is reporting that Fox has offered Don Cheadle and Freida Pinto roles in the film.

I don't know a whole lot about the script but from what I've read online it's likely that Pinto would be playing Stewart, a female scientist who works with Franco's character. Cheadle could be playing the human villain of the film whose mistreatment of the apes leads them to want to revolt against humans. Of course, that's not 100% but based on some of the script beats that have been revealed, it seems to fit the actors.

Also it should be mentioned that both Cheadle and Pinto have only been offered the roles in the film and could easily turn them down. Rupert Wyatt (THE ESCAPIST) is directing the film for a June 24, 2011 release date.

Extra Tidbit: Pinto is currently dating her SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE star Dev Patel.

I know it's not a re-make but did they forget that Conquest of the Planet of the Apes covered this material? The entire series is a paradox...or is this a prequal to that god awful tim burton movie...still a bad idea

The only reason I am interested in this is because of James Franco. Dude makes anything entertaining. If Cheadle signs that'd be awesome too. He's a great actor.

we vote with our dollars. there's a reason remakes, reboots, etc ar being made... money.

Want them to stop? Stop paying for them. And stop downloading good shit. Bitching on a website about it just points out your lack of understanding of the movie BUSINESS.

Just stop. Just leave things alone. Just put things to bed. I don't want anymore remakes, prequels, sequels, adaptations or spin offs.

I just want a solid 90 minutes of creativity, intelligence. Not three hours and ending a million times, not one short fizzle where nothing relevant happens. It can be completely derivative. It can completely outright copy and plagarise other movies but please for the love of god just give it a different name so that the movies i love don't have to be

Does anyone actually need to know what happens at the norwegian base? did we want to know what made Hannibal Lector? Did we want to know how the republic was taken over by the empire?

Just please stop and leave the good ones undeflied. Thank you.
