Why hasn’t anyone talked to James Franco about Dawn of the Planet of the Apes???
— Posted by The "Superior" Anthony
When I think back at some of my favorite moments with TMB I can’t help but think about “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”. The movie was one of my favorite to review mainly because it was so easy and didn’t feel contrived in anyway while writing. The movie had a lot of great things going for it including its cast, led by James Franco. That being said I’ve been quietly cheering on the production of the sequel “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” and feel excited about re-visiting the world inhabited by Andy Serkis’ “Ceaser” and James Franco’s Will Rodman… so why hasn’t anyone spoken to Franco about the project?
In reality I can totally imagine a film without Franco’s character and I understand that he’s not a requirement for the next film to be entertaining. In all rights, the last film was Caeser’s story, not Franco’s, and the continued adventures with his rise to power is a natural progression for the story. But the fact that they haven’t even spoken to the guy is just cold, and this may be his way of sending a wink and nudge to the folks behind the film that he might’ve had a part in the original being a success. Let’s see how things pan out from here…
