Brian Cox To Spank The Monkeys
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.
