    Rise of the Apes will take audience to a modern-setting present day San Francisco, where man's own experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy. WETA announced previously that the simians in the new movie will not be some prosthesis monkey but will be all on the motion capture or computer generated (CG).

    With Rupert Wyatt on the director seat, Rise of the Apes has already have some key casting lately with James Franco (scientist), John Lithgow (his Alzheimer's-stricken father) and Freida Pinto (primatologist). Mark your planner for June 24, 2011 for the release.
