James Franco was unaware of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes cameo

9 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Warning: This article contains spoilers that some readers may prefer to avoid.

James Franco was unaware of his cameo in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

The actor's character from Rise of the Planet of the Apes will apparently make a posthumous appearance on video in the upcoming sequel.

"Wait, I have a cameo? I didn't know that," he told EW (via The Wrap).

"You know, I don't even think they asked my permission for that."

The footage of Franco is believed to have been filmed during the making of the previous movie, but believed lost with the departure of director Rupert Sanders from the follow-up.

It shows him as scientist Will Rodman, who created the first of the genius apes, as well as accidentally unleashing a virus that kills the majority of humanity, including himself.

The Matt Reeves-directed sequel stars Gary Oldman, Keri Russell and Andy Serkis. »

Karen Gillan's hair donated to Star Wars 7

10 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Karen Gillan's shaved hair has been donated to Star Wars Episode VII.

The Doctor Who actress has revealed that her red hair could feature in Jj Abrams's upcoming sequel.

She revealed her shaved head at Comic-Con International last year for her role as Nebula in James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy.

When asked by Collider if she was upset when her head was shaved, she said: "No, I was laughing hysterically.

"It really hit me when I woke up the next morning. That's when I was like, 'Oh my God, where's my hair?!' But also, everyone kept me in good spirit. Everyone was laughing and telling jokes. Marvel are the best company to work for, they really are. They treat you really well.

"They made my hair into the most incredible well-made wig and they gave it to the Star Wars people. It's just so »

Caesar leads a simian army in new 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' images

15 April 2014 10:26 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

2011's "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" ended with Caesar (Andy Serkis) leading his fellow simians against their human oppressors. Now, "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" finds Caesar engaged in all-out war against humans like Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman and Keri Russell (but no James Franco). A handful of new photos from the prequel-sequel will give fans an idea of what to expect this time around.  Check them out here: »

James Franco Doesn’t Know About His Cameo In Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

15 April 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With the amount of projects that James Franco is involved in, I guess you can’t blame him for not even realizing that he has a cameo in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Yes, he was the star of the film’s predecessor, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, but he was never expected to show up in the highly-anticipated sequel. Especially since his character, Will Rodman, was wiped out by a “virulent plague.” Despite this, Rodman will still have a posthumous cameo, which Franco apparently doesn’t even know about.

“Wait, I have a cameo? I didn’t know that,” said Franco to EW. “You know, I don’t even think they asked my permission to do that.”

There’s no word yet on how Rodman will factor into the story or how big his role will be, but seeing as Franco didn’t even know about it, »

Movie News: 'Apes' Toys in Action; David Fincher Drops 'Steve Jobs;' Philip Seymour Hoffman in 'God's Pocket' Trailer

15 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: Even in repose, these articulated action figures by Neca, made to tie in with the July 11 release of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, look very fierce. Andy Serkis leads the apes as Caesar, while Jason Clarke, Keri Russell and Gary Oldman will represent the human race in the movie. [Neca via Collider]   Steve Jobs: David Fincher will not be directing Sony's upcoming big-screen adaptation of Walter Isaacson's biography Steve Jobs. He was in talks to helm the project, based on a screenplay by Aaron Sorkin, his collaborator on The Social Network, but discussions hit a snag -- possibly in regard to his payment and control over marketing -- and so it looks like both Fincher and Sony will go their separate ways. Fincher is finishing...

We Saw the Future on the ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Set

14 April 2014 9:02 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

I was fortunate enough to be on the set of Rise of the Planet of the Apes back when it was called Caesar and everyone seemed a little nervous to be following up the disastrous Tim Burton remake. Up until the lights went down at the screening of Rise, I thought it was going to be a slow-burn movie about James Franco’s character dealing with the reality of Alzheimer’s disease through a sci-fi conceit about a drug that made a baby monkey smarter. The only reason I thought that was the thrust of the movie for so long was because we were living in a pre-Caesar performance capture world. There was something about seeing Andy Serkis’ performance as Caesar come entirely from Andy Serkis that I challenge anyone to claim they expected. Gollum is a fantastic technical achievement, yes, but up until his appearance in The Hobbit, after »

Jason Clarke Talks Working with Andy Serkis, His Character’s Relationship to Caesar, and More on the Set of Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

14 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of the interesting things about director Matt ReevesDawn of the Planet of the Apes is the way the film flips the switch on how animals and humans currently live.  When the film starts, the apes have built a flourishing society in the forest outside San Francisco with Caesar (Andy Serkis) as their leader.  On the other hand, the humans, being led by Gary Oldman and Jason Clarke, are living hand-to-mouth, struggling to survive.  After the events of the first film when the two societies eventually collided...Let's just say neither side trusts the other and that dynamic plays into the rest of the film. During a break in filming last year when the production was in New Orleans, I participated in a group interview with Clarke.  He talked about how he got involved in the project, the great script, working with Andy Serkis and the other motion capture actors, »

'A Most Wanted Man' trailer showcases Philip Seymour Hoffman's final lead role

11 April 2014 4:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I still find it painful to talk or write about Philip Seymour Hoffman -- no celebrity passing in the last couple of years has hit me quite as hard as his, and I know that goes for many of us. So rewatching Anton Corbijn's "A Most Wanted Man" is going to be a strangely melancholy experience, not least because it's as strong a reminder as anything of what cinema has lost: as a rumpled German intelligence agent weary of post-9/11 paranoia, the actor gives one of his finest lead turns. I called his performance "a thing of wily, weathered beauty" at the film's Sundance premiere, mere weeks before Hoffman's death; viewed after the fact, the sense of palpable exhaustion he brings to the character may seem morbidly poignant. The film itself is rather special, too: a worthy companion piece, of sorts, to fellow John Le Carré adaptation "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, »

New Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes Photos

20th Century Fox’s Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes is quickly approaching – the film opens in cinemas three months from today on July 11.

USA Today has the latest photos from director Matt Reeves’ upcoming film.

Caesar (Andy Serkis) has grown from his days as leader of a primate rebellion in 2011′s Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes. “We see him as a statesman and a leader and someone who has galvanized all of these apes,” says Serkis. “We see the beginning of their world.” Reeves is impressed by Caesar’s care-worn face. “You can see a real haunted quality.”

Star Wars: Episode 7 to shoot in Abu Dhabi, rumoured to be Tatooine

11 April 2014 2:38 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Star Wars: Episode VII is to reportedly shoot scenes in Abu Dhabi next month.

The sci-fi sequel from Jj Abrams will film in the United Arab Emirates state for around four weeks in mid-May, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The area is rumoured to have been chosen to re-create desert planet Tatooine, the home of Anakin and Luke Skywalker and Jabba the Hutt's lair.

Tatooine featured in every Star Wars movie apart from The Empire Strikes Back, and was previously filmed in Tunisia. However, the North African country has reportedly been deemed too dangerous to house a modern Hollywood film.

Star Wars 7 will also shoot scenes at Pinewood Studio in the UK.

Abrams and Lucasfilm are yet to officially announce any new cast members, but Lupita Nyong'o, Michael Fassbender, Gary Oldman and Hugo Weaving have all been named as potential stars.

Adam Driver has been strongly linked to a Sith role in Episode VII, »

New 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' images showcase the growing primate army

10 April 2014 11:10 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) USA Today has debuted 10 new images from "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes", Fox’s follow-up to the $482 million-grossing "Rise of the Planet of the Apes". The sequel, which arrives July 11, picks up a decade after the events of the first film, with Caesar and his growing nation of apes now threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus. A fragile peace proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of war that will likely determine who will become Earth’s dominant species. “We’ve got apes on horses,” director Matt Reeves tells the newspaper. “There is a sense in the beginning of the movie that apes have inherited the Earth. You see the species as it takes dominion over the planet. It’s an ape-world. That’s the fun of it.” "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" stars Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, »

Newcomer Maisie Richardson-Sellers Eyed for Star Wars Episode VII; Movie Will Return to Tatooine

10 April 2014 6:13 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

She doesn’t have a single acting credit to her name, but Maisie Richardson-Sellers is said to to be in the running for what has been described as ”an undisclosed and possibly major role” in J.J. AbramsStar Wars Episode VII.

The Oxford-educated actress could be in line for the part which was recently described in a casting call as a young black or mixed-race woman who may be a descendent of Jedi Knight Obi Wan Kenobi. In the film (which takes place 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi) she would presumably have a vital role.

Hundreds of actors have auditioned, and The Hollywood Reporter does say that other sources tell them that Richardson-Sellers hasn’t been offered a role. It’s interesting to see her name emerge however.

Meanwhile, in related Star Wars Episode VII news, it has been revealed that J.J. Abrams and Disney are »
