Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog provides some information about Franco's role in "Rise of the Apes", supposedly a prequel for the revised "Planet of the Apes" (although based on their plot summary I don't see the connection).

This film looks more like a reboot of the original franchise's fourth film ("Conquest of the Planet of the Apes").

Confused? Stay tuned. I'm sure it will get worse before it gets better.

James Franco may be best known for his role as Harry Osborn, Jr. in the Sam Raimi "Spider-man" movies but he has had plenty of other roles, including Tristan in "Tristan and Isolde", Sol in "Knocked Up", Scott Smith in "Silk", and currently Franco on daytime TV"s General Hospital.
