“Harry Potter” star nabs villainous role in “Rise of the Apes”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Will there be any room left for the apes?

20th Century Fox reports that Tom Felton, best known for playing Draco Malfoy in the “Harry Potter” franchise, will join the upcoming “Planet of the Apes” prequel-sequel, “Rise of the Apes.” Continuing his villainous ways, Felton will play son of Brian Cox’s controversial ape-facility owner, according to ComingSoon.net.

“Rise” already boasts an impressive cast, from James Franco to John Lithgow and a motion-captured Andy Serkis. Peter Jackson’s beloved effects house — Weta Digital — will create photo-realistic apes, as opposed to the costumed actors used in prior “Apes” films.

Directed by Rupert Wyatt, “Rise of the Apes” takes place in modern-day San Francisco, where man’s own experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy.

“Rise of the Apes” will be in theaters on June 24, 2011.
