Brian Cox Probably Causes RISE OF THE APES

Brian Cox has joined the cast of Fox’s new Planet Of The Apes film, Rise Of The Apes.

The Wrap is reporting that Cox is in final negotiations to play “the villainous owner of a primate sanctuary who runs the facility without compassion for the animals that live there.” Sounds to me like he will be complicit in the title’s action.

Cox will be joining cast members James Franco, Freida Pinto, John Lithgow and Andy Serkis.Franco and Litgow will play a father and son team of scientists who have raised a genetically altered chimp named Ceaser (Serkis via performance capture) who will ultimately lead an uprising of apes against humanity.

The film is currently in production with a scheduled June 24, 2011 release date.
