BCOX210The cast list for the upcoming Planet Of The Apes prequel, Rise Of The Apes, continues to grow and the latest member to sign up is none other than Brian Cox.

He’ll be playing the head of the private ape sanctuary who’s much more interested in the bottom line than animal welfare and he’ll be the boss of John Lithgow and James Franco. After all, when was the last time you saw scientists in a movie be potrayed as anything but sinister amoral money-grubbers?

But what would a film like this be without justice for the tormented? Expect Andy Serkis as Caesar to rain down some great vengeance and furious bananary anger upon Cox’s ape bashing self.

Shooting begins later this month in Canada for a June 2011 release.
