Want to be in RISE OF THE APES?

     May 24, 2010

With the Fox prequel Rise of the Apes (directed by Rupert Wyatt) getting ready to start filming this July, it looks like the production is looking for both principal actors and extras to star in the movie.  But before you get all excited that you can play an ape, as we’ve previously reported, Fox is using WETA for the Ape effects as they’re going CGI rather than men in suits.  Yeah, I don’t agree with the decision either.

But if you still want to be in the movie, you should know it’s filming at Mammoth Studios in Burnaby, BC and all around Vancouver.  The shoot is scheduled to go from July 5 – September 30 and the film is getting released June 24, 2011.  Hit the jump for more info:

According to feature film auditions, there are two places to submit your headshots/resume:

Here’s what we know about the story so far:

James Franco will play a scientist who has been working on a cure for Alzheimer’s that is being tested on apes. The test subject named Caesar starts to evolve rapidly, and the scientist takes him home to live with him and protects him from cruel doctors.  It is unknown how the events of Rise of the Apes led to Planet of the Apes.


With production getting ready to star in just over a month, I’m sure we’ll be hearing a lot more casting info soon.
